The People's Confederation of Rhyssua is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Denis Gajsek with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, aversion to nipples, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.988 billion Rhyssuans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarpedos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Rhyssuan economy, worth 241 trillion talpins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,530 talpins, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer talpins to support "struggling" industries, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Rhyssua, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, and political detractors refer to Denis Gajsek as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhyssua's national animal is the Clouded Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rhyssua is ranked 74,803rd in the world and 158th in Thaecia for Most Pacifist, with 74.7 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
