The Republic of Rigel8 is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The cynical, devout population of 7.681 billion Rigel8ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 37.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Rigel8ian economy, worth 237 trillion ores a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 30,944 ores, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Rigel8's national animal is the ion.
