The Democratic Republic of Rigasta is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Stevo Pendarovski with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.453 billion Rigans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skopje. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Riggish economy, worth 139 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,996 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Rigasta is often a lifetime appointment, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, every week is blindness awareness week, and all the world's a stage for Riggish political theatrics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rigasta's national animal is the reindeer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is atheism.

Rigasta is ranked 15,260th in the world and 243rd in Europe for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 4,235.67 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
