The Golden Liberty Hounds of DiRito-Opolis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Golden Liberator Nicholas DiRito with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.57 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, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. 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 1,255 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 225,426 Gold-Backed DiRitonian Ridgers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,260,251 per year while the poor average 20,062, a ratio of 62.8 to 1.
Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, and college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper. 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.
