The Call for the Dead of Richard I is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pharaoh with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.313 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 29.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Richard Iian economy, worth a remarkable 5,383 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,599 Platinum Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

School uniforms are compulsory, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Richard I City, Richard I has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and local councils have to call in dump trucks to clear parks of dinosaur droppings. 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 4,448th in the world and 15th in Texas for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 389.77 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
