The Empire of Rhetiaa is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Her Imperial Majesty Empress Odet with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.288 billion Rhetiaans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panem. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhetiaan economy, worth 979 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 134,361 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, homophobia is off the menu, tax rises are attributed to divine will, and populations of two-headed Phoenixes have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhetiaa's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rhetiaa is ranked 53,570th in the world and 2,154th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,605.64 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
