The Protectorate of Raskana is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 767 million Raskanens are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ederhaven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Raskanen economy, worth 82.0 trillion Raskanen Shackles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 106,902 Raskanen Shackles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 511,299 per year while the poor average 13,096, a ratio of 39.0 to 1.

Referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, school guidance counselors recommend monastic vows as an alternative to higher education, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, and the government has become increasingly militant. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raskana's national animal is the Raskanan Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Raskana is ranked 14,495th in the world and 174th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 9,006.29 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
