The Commonwealth of Riktoth is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Atherea with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.159 billion Riktothians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eos. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Riktothian economy, worth 240 trillion Quanxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,300 Quanxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Riktoth's national animal is the Cougar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Riktoth is ranked 170,323rd in the world and 374th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.07 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
