The Empire of Rhetiaa is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Her Imperial Majesty Empress Odet with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.941 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded 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 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhetiaan economy, worth a remarkable 1,088 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,029 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, treason is relative, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. 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 7,934th in the world and 245th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.58 on the Human Development Index.
