The United Socialist States of Rahatalia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Samir Bihmoutine with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.914 billion Sharmis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sharmipore. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rahatalian economy, worth 229 trillion Shwarmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 120,039 Shwarmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rahatalia's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rahatalia is ranked 186,064th in the world and 1,876th in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring -80.33 on the Rand Index.
