The Confederacy of Rectionk is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Minister Harrison with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.024 billion Rectionians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rectonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Rectionkian economy, worth 408 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 202,032 credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,838,204 per year while the poor average 2,522, a ratio of 728 to 1.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, laborers are building walls and making Wezeltonia pay for it, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, and anyone interested in the stock market is investigated. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Rectionk's national animal is the lemur, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rectionk is ranked 48,473rd in the world and 821st in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 408 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
