The Federal Republic of New Rickiland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Raine with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.052 billion New Rickilandians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lesmo. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Rickilandian economy, worth 596 trillion Lire a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,522 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Lion Dung" has been declared a national treasure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Rickiland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Rickiland is ranked 43,183rd in the world and 472nd in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 84,522.57 Standard Monetary Units.
