Raxacoricofallapatorius is said to be located in either Mutter's Spiral or the Isop Galaxy in a star system that includes its twin planet Clom.
From space, Raxacoricofallapatorius resembles a magnificent purple sphere swirled with white clouds. An interesting feature of the planet is its four poles. It is unknown what causes this otherwise impossible phenomenon. These poles are marked by icy caverns and fierce blizzards. The planet's ocean is a deep burgundy colour. The border between the land and the sea is often marked by cliffs the colour of sapphire and chalk. The planet's largest continent is named Raxas Prime. In addition to the continents, there are also a number of archipelagos dotting the seas, such as the Islands of Hisp. The presence of unknown chemicals in the Raxacoricofallapatorian atmosphere causes it to smell like cinnamon.
Raxacoricofallapatorius is home a wide range of flora and fauna, the most notable example being the Raxacoricofallapatorians themselves. Other examples of wildlife on the planet include poppito trees, rakweed and baaradellskelliumfatrexius beasts. It is reasonable to assume that, like the Raxacoricofallapatorians, all other lifeforms on the planet is calcium-based.

Sometime before the 21st century, the criminal Slitheen family bribed its way into power on Raxacoricofallapatorius. Their rule brought ruin to the planet's economy, and it was not long before the population rose up against them. Exposed, shamed, and arrested during the Great Purge of Yon:556, the entire family was tried and found guilty with no chance of appeal and given the death sentence. Many members of the family fled justice, but they continued to be hunted down by the Blathereen family and Judoon. The actions of the Slitheen ruined the good name of the Raxacoricofallapatorians.
The Slitheen that did manage to escape preyed on many other planets, including Earth, for centuries.
In the 347th century Raxacoricofallapatorians fought alongside many other species in the Platonic War against the Human species.
In the year 34,600 C.E. the Lord Predator was Haralto Wong Bopz Wim-Waldon Arlene. However, he died shortly after this.
Society and cultureEdit
Raxacoricofallapatorian culture was based strongly around large family units and clans. Their naming conventions were very complex and indicated an individual's exact placement in the family tree. Mixed families, while rare, were not uncommon.
Raxacoricofallapatorians are led by a Grand Council and an Assembly. The leader of the Grand Council was known as the Lord Predator.
Raxacoricofallapatorians are known to make use of capital punishment, and often performed these acts very harshly. The criminal would be lowered into a cauldron of acetic acid, which would then be heated until it began to boil. The acidity of the solution is formulated to dissolve the skin, allowing the criminal's organs to drop into the liquid while they are still alive, resulting in a slow and incredibly painful death.
Oral hygiene is apparently of little concern to the Raxacoricofallapatorians, as it is mentioned that they do not brush their teeth. They also seem to care little for extravagantly served food, as it is also mentioned that they serve it in uncomplicated ways.
Two known Raxacoricofallapatorian insults are "May plaque brown your belly" and "May your mother boil in the cauldron of atonement". These insults presumably derive from their calcium-based physiology.
