The Tuvhalian Dual Kingdom of Recheve is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Queen Lydia I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.564 billion Rechians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grabacr. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rechian economy, worth a remarkable 1,339 trillion Markes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,794 Markes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Queen Lydia I to meetings with foreign heads of state, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, and strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Recheve's national animal is the Pinehatch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Colossism.

Recheve is ranked 48,812th in the world and 11th in The Western Colonies for Most Income Equality, scoring 48.89 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
