The Grand Coalition of Rithian is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Korehn Ilahar with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.799 billion Rithics are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Social Equality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nero. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports industries.
Notable individuals are granted land and titles, cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and research into 'designer babies' is banned. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Rithian's national animal is the Black Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Altrism, and its currency is the Nikal.
