The State of La Riojania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by CÚlaga with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.933 billion Riojanos are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vinchina. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Riojano economy, worth 505 trillion Peso Riojanoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 128,644 Peso Riojanoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Bad punctuation has come to a full stop, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Riojania's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Evangelism.

La Riojania is ranked 82,392nd in the world and 30th in Anteria for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 197,092 Standard Monetary Units.
