The Free Individuals of DiRito-Opolis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Nick DiRito with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.23 billion DiRitians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DiRito Megacity. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient DiRitian economy, worth a remarkable 2,529 trillion DiRitian Ridgers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 225,226 DiRitian Ridgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Human resources employees have time for hobbies as harassment is designated "high praise", all you have to do is pray to get into DiRito-Opolis, the government regrets to say that it is forced to make cuts to citizens, and DiRitian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact. Crime 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 DiRitian Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is DiRitism.

DiRito-Opolis is ranked 645th in the world and 1st in Ridgefield for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 369.1 on the Hayek Index.
