The Principality of Raikus is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 220 million Raikusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, although Administration, Defense, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Public Transport and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The strong Raikusian economy, worth 16.0 trillion new raikusian dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 72,678 new raikusian dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, arbitration is mightier than the sword, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, and immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Raikus's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Raikus is ranked 12,708th in the world and 435th in the West Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,581.04 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
