The Rhapsody Tribune is a major daily newspaper published in the city of Rhapsody, with superregional circulation. Readers along the western coast of Illuminatia turn to The Tribune as a newspaper-of-record for news originating from the greater Rhapsody metropolitan area and throughout the West Coast Megalopolitan Complex.

With a total circulation of 3,155,600, split between the local edition a 1,797,300, the regional edition at 933,300, and the superregional edition at 425,000, The Tribune is the most-read newspaper in western Illuminatia and one of the most-read in all of Illuminatia. Readers in the larger super-region are known to split their reading between The Tribune and The Adamopolis Times, considering both papers nearly-equal components, and oftentimes the only two components, of their essential daily media diet. Readers local to Rhapsody tend to read either The Tribune or its primary local competition, the Rhapsody Daily.

Rhapsody's dominance in the greater west coast region naturally makes The Tribune also the dominant newspaper in the same region, with readers looking to Rhapsody for economic and political indicators.

The Tribune publishes three editions: a local edition for readers in the greater Rhapsody metropolitan area focused largely on civic matters; a regional edition catered to readers in the West Coast Megalopolitan Complex; and a superregional edition focused on the portion of the continent west of the Transilluminatian Range. The superregional edition of The Tribune is circulated from the northwestern reaches of the Illuminatian continent all the way to Requiem in the south. This edition carries news of importance and interest to the greater west coast region, including the top stories collected from places around the super-region as well as the major economic stories out of Rhapsody that have regional implications.

The journalism found in The Tribune is considered to be on par with that of The Times, Vos Valley News, and the rest of Illuminatia's most prestigious newspapers. The Tribune operates bureaus at its headquarters in Rhapsody as well as the cities of Requiem, Rhythm, Voyage a Deux, Miles Davis, and Rollins.

The Tribune earns 5,738,610μ in revenue per AU from a mix of advertising and subscription proceeds. The newsstand price of The Tribune is 30mμ.

The Tribune was a founding member of the Rhapsody periodicals distribution system and continues to maintain full Periodicals Circulation License-paying membership in the distribution system.
