Free City of Rigia

Population11.59 billion

LeaderKing Matthew
FaithThe New Church of Rigia


The Constitutional Monarchy of Free City of Rigia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Matthew with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.59 billion Rigians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rigia. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rigian economy, worth a remarkable 2,225 trillion Vires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,039 Vires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, government ministers have eclectic tastes in curtains, and goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter. Crime is totally unknown. Free City of Rigia's national animal is the Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The New Church of Rigia.

Free City of Rigia is ranked 274,130th in the world and 32nd in New Westphalia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -20.3 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
