The Transitional Government of Rtajad is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Regent Haron Ytrawahud with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.143 billion Rtajadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ytrajed. The average income tax rate is 28.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rtajadian economy, worth 284 trillion Streds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,885 Streds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, rude retail employees are now even ruder homeless panhandlers, class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, and city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rtajad's national animal is the Rtajadian Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rtajad is ranked 181,250th in the world and 159th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.89 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
