The Call for the Dead of Richard I is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Pharaoh with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.05 billion Richard Iians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richard I City. The average income tax rate is 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Richard Iian economy, worth a remarkable 4,145 trillion Platinum Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 172,388 Platinum Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, students cut up leftover Platinum Dollars during Arts and Crafts, and several universities in Richard I have assembled expensive research teams to explore and study new lands and old ruins (Richard I has found 3 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Richard I's national animal is the Hell Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is logging into NationStates every so often.

Richard I is ranked 143rd in Texas and 110,194th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -63 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
