The People's Republic of Rhegardul is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Dagda with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, fear of technology, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.179 billion Rhegardulians 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sokvah. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The powerhouse Rhegardulian economy, worth 103 trillion Rhegoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 88,148 Rhegoes, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, vacationing Rhegardulians expect to be treated as royalty, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Rhegardul's national animal is the Jaguarundi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rhegardul is ranked 44,171st in the world and 1,690th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,039.37 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
