The Enlightened Autocracy of Riakou is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by 'The Overseer' with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.333 billion Riakans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.
The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Worthington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Riakan economy, worth a remarkable 1,925 trillion Riak Marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 231,059 Riak Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 693,179 per year while the poor average 60,159, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.
The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, the New Worthington XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle, wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, and census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in Riakou after the ban on emigration was lifted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Riakou's national animal is the Dachshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is unspecified.
