The Imperial Kingdom of Riotopia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Autarch Riael with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.418 billion Riotopians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riocron. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Riotopian economy, worth a remarkable 3,867 trillion Rions 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 250,861 Rions, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,317,316 per year while the poor average 25,543, a ratio of 51.6 to 1.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, ghost regiments exist only on paper, the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime is totally unknown. Riotopia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Riaelhysm.

Riotopia is ranked 39,828th in the world and 1,764th in Osiris for Most Authoritarian, with 1,241.17 milliStalins.
