The Republic of Riachisland is a massive, genial nation, notable for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.907 billion Riachislandians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Riachislandian economy, worth 82.0 trillion Offas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,009 Offas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Lynx sacrifices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riachisland's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
