The Chorus Line of Rigel 2 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Robert Klymyshyn with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.247 billion Rigelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sandapam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The all-consuming Rigelian economy, worth 244 trillion Gold-pressed Latinum Strips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 108,953 Gold-pressed Latinum Strips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 342,207 per year while the poor average 26,560, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

More and more people are signing up for the government party, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Rigel 2, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. Crime is totally unknown. Rigel 2's national animal is the Wing-Slug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rigel 2 is ranked 32,998th in the world and 9th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 9,581.51 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
