The Free Land of Rhodoki is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.882 billion Rhodokians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jelkala. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rhodokian economy, worth 778 trillion Denars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 113,172 Denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soup kitchens are the only things doing roaring business, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhodoki's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bearism.

Rhodoki is ranked 16,822nd in the world and 6th in Austro Hungarian Imperium for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
