The Republic of Resetho is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 394 million Resethoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Resethoan economy, worth 9.07 trillion Resethian Shillings 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 major contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 23,018 Resethian Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Resethoans any less frightened, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Resetho's national animal is the Elephant.

Resetho is ranked 195,443rd in the world and 7,425th in Osiris for Highest Economic Output, with 9.07 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
