The Grand Coalition of Rithian is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Korehn Ilahar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.283 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.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nero. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Rithianian economy, worth a remarkable 2,706 trillion Nikals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 220,385 Nikals, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.
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 a well-funded police force. Rithian's national animal is the Black Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Altrism.
