The Republic of Rito is a very large, cultured nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 113 million Ritoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 41.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ritoan economy, worth 4.08 trillion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Basket Weaving, Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 36,068 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passengers often cause a stink on public transport, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. Crime is totally unknown. Rito's national animal is the Hylian Retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rito is ranked 214,622nd in the world and 13th in Hyrule for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 303.13 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
