The Holy Empire of Richard I is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pharaoh with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 39.921 billion Richard Iians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richard I City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Richard Iian economy, worth a remarkable 7,069 trillion Platinum Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,094 Platinum Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Richard I has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, local councils have to call in dump trucks to clear parks of dinosaur droppings, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Richard I's national animal is the Hell Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is logging into NationStates every so often.

Richard I is ranked 265,970th in the world and 156th in Texas for Most Avoided, scoring 0.57 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
