The Republic of Riachisland is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.271 billion Riachislandians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Riachislandian economy, worth 100 trillion Offas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,453 Offas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, tourists call Riachislandian beach towns "the fine coastline", snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and Riachislandians seem to be catching more chills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riachisland's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
