The United Socialist States of Rahatalia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Samir Bihmoutine with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.344 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 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rahatalian economy, worth 140 trillion Shwarmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 104,883 Shwarmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production. 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 174,338th in the world and 1,383rd in 10000 Islands for Most Stationary, with 3.68226847668 Days.
