The Very Juicy Federation of RETALIA is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Koray Ki Valerius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.253 billion Retalians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azura. The average income tax rate is 66.7%.

The frighteningly efficient RETALIAian economy, worth 452 trillion Retalian Rems a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,307 Retalian Rems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RETALIA's national animal is the Rattlesnake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Islam.

RETALIA is ranked 132,464th in the world and 5th in Zelandia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36.78 on the Rand Index.
