The Jolly Santa Hegemony of Racoda is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Rudolph with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.923 billion Racodans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Racoda City. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Racodan economy, worth 971 trillion cookies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 81,459 cookies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, theories abound over why conspiracy theorists are being arrested, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime is totally unknown. Racoda's national animal is the zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Racoda is ranked 25,131st in the world and 517th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 11.9 billion Capita.
