The Grand Coalition of Rithian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Korehn Ilahar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, avowedly heterosexual populace, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.922 billion Rithics 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 minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nero. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Rithianian economy, worth a remarkable 2,886 trillion Nikals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 223,358 Nikals, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Notable individuals are granted land and titles, cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and research into 'designer babies' is banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Rithian's national animal is the Black Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Altrism.

Rithian is ranked 139,776th in the world and 4,407th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 11.3 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
