The Democratic States of Raflandia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by The Honourable Sir Bob Bobson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 778 million Idiots enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ignorance. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient dumb economy, worth 81.3 trillion Rals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,554 Rals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors are trying to diagnose diseases by looking at their patients' Snipchat pictures, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, third world countries are rich in "I Love New Ignorance" t-shirts, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raflandia's national animal is the Common Idiot skink, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Raflandia is ranked 24,143rd in the world and 2nd in Coldonia for Most Secular, with 45.84 Atheism Rate.
