The Allied States of El Rita is a massive, pleasant nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.474 billion El Ritans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.9%.

The strong El Ritan economy, worth 201 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 57,973 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 175,654 per year while the poor average 14,882, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. El Rita's national animal is the great bald eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

El Rita is ranked 107,569th in the world and 10th in California for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 616.66 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
