The Stygian Malignancy of Rethan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by REDACTED with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.154 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, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of REDACTED. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Pathogenic economy, worth an astonishing 12,749 trillion colours a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 396,522 colours, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,595,628 per year while the poor average 23,804, a ratio of 109 to 1.

It is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, and no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it. 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 50,962nd in the world and 10th in Limitless Universe for Most Developed, scoring 65.06 on the Human Development Index.
