The Holy Empire of Rizic is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Master with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.971 billion Rizicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Les Louch. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
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, and its currency is the Globic.
