The Protectorate of Costa Rioja is a colossal, devout nation, renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.364 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is mainly concerned with Religion & Spirituality, although Commerce and Law & Order are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10%. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Soda Sales industry.

Crime is a serious problem, and the police force struggles 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, and its currency is the point.

Costa Rioja is ranked 5th in OS Territory of Valladares and 68,793rd in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -13 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
