The Protectorate of Costa Rioja is a colossal, devout nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.71 billion Costa Riojans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Spirituality, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Healthcare and Public Transport aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The thriving Costa Riojan economy, worth 214 trillion points a year, is highly specialized and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 27,860 points, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 80,686 per year while the poor average 7,623, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Costa Rioja's national animal is the seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Costa Rioja is ranked 4th in OS Territory of Valladares and 65,051st in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 22 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
