The Jovial Hoho of Riakou is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by 'The Overseer' with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.64 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 64.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Riakan economy, worth a remarkable 2,735 trillion Xumaris 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 257,084 Xumaris, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Future leaders of Riakou regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care. 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.

Riakou is ranked 202,524th in the world and 71st in Azure Watester Federation for Safest, scoring 6.52 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
