The Enlightened Principality of Resilea is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mithril with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.494 billion Resileans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Resilia. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Resilean economy, worth 544 trillion Goldons 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 and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 121,220 Goldons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, in government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, and children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Resilea's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Resilea is ranked 204,916th in the world and 490th in NationStates for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19.85 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
