The Empire of Rhetiaa is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Her Imperial Majesty Empress Odet with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.539 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 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhetiaan economy, worth 705 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 127,379 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Rhetiaan selfishness, gay men commonly complain about their time of the month, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Her Imperial Majesty Empress Odet's wardrobe. 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 9,445th in the world and 281st in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 13.46 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
