The Dominion of Rhodique is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 430 million Rhodique are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Desmond. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The very strong Rhodique economy, worth 26.6 trillion Registers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 61,934 Registers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 270,810 per year while the poor average 8,935, a ratio of 30.3 to 1.

On graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, Rhodique has designated Desmond as its capital city, and the Rhodique Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime is a problem. Rhodique's national animal is the Shouldered Elephant, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Rhodique is ranked 9,292nd in the world and 4th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Pro-Market, scoring 86 on the Rand Index.
