The Oppressed Peoples of Rhelonta is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 4.311 billion Rhelontans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Rhelontan economy, worth 126 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 29,284 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader has just been declared ruler of Rhelonta in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhelonta's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rhelonta is ranked 57,069th in the world and 1st in Noname Region for Highest Drug Use, scoring 91.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
