The Grand Republic of Molts Rius is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Grammaticus with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.381 billion Riusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuevo Carthago. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Riusian economy, worth 225 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,904 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Molts Rius's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Molts Rius's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
