The United Socialist States of Rahatalia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Samir Bihmoutine with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.344 billion Sharmis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sharmipore. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rahatalian economy, worth 282 trillion Shwarmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 120,534 Shwarmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escalators are avoided at all costs, the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, Rahatalia has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and Rahatalia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rahatalia's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rahatalia is ranked 211,597th in the world and 1,327th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -191.69 on the Hayek Index.
