The Republic of Rio Rojo y Rio Blanco is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Eduardo Sánchez with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.463 billion Rio Rojo y Rio Blancoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rio Negro. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rio Rojo y Rio Blancoan economy, worth 209 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,859 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Environmental officials dismiss uncontrolled wildfires burning down major cities as nature taking its course, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, and stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Rio Rojo y Rio Blanco's national animal is the skeezit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is whatever yours is.

Rio Rojo y Rio Blanco is ranked 237,225th in the world and 5,116th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18.25 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
