The Holy Empire of Rizic is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Master with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.089 billion Rizicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Les Louch. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Rizician economy, worth 738 trillion Globics a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,254 Globics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rizic's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
