The Most Sacrosanct Kingdom of Rethaucor is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Arruns Veranius Gallus VI with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, lack of airports, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.258 billion Rethaucorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stirpiacum. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rethaucorian economy, worth 580 trillion aureuses 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. 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 136,244 aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Religious classes are compulsory for all school students, most academic research has ground to a halt, the giant 80-storey carving of King Arruns Veranius Gallus VI in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, and the deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rethaucor's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Prebyterian Church.

Rethaucor is ranked 18,509th in the world and 1st in Eusogelia for Most Extreme, scoring 41.27 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
