The Stygian Malignancy of Rethan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by REDACTED with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.109 billion Pathogenic are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of REDACTED. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pathogenic economy, worth an astonishing 11,128 trillion colours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 395,898 colours, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,621,567 per year while the poor average 63,904, a ratio of 25.4 to 1.

Foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Rethan's national animal is the Eaters of Worlds, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rethan is ranked 72,660th in the world and 6th in Limitless Universe for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 183.38 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
