The Golden Liberty Hounds of DiRito-Opolis is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Golden Liberator Nicholas DiRito with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.699 billion DiRitonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gilded Free Megacity of Nicola. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient DiRitonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 trillion Gold-Backed DiRitonian Ridgers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 224,634 Gold-Backed DiRitonian Ridgers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,228,452 per year while the poor average 20,985, a ratio of 58.5 to 1.
Retirement homes are filled with foreign war criminals, stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, and an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. DiRito-Opolis's national animal is the Golden DiRitonian Finch, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Golden-Liberty DiRitoism.
