The Free Land of Rihooka is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kirsten with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.466 billion Rihookans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rihookan economy, worth a remarkable 1,079 trillion Ris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 127,461 Ris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rihooka's national animal is the Guinea Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rihooka is ranked 140,979th in the world and 25th in Hippy Haven for Most Authoritarian, with 567.28 milliStalins.
