The Free Land of Rihooka is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kirsten with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 7.064 billion Rihookans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Rihookan economy, worth 896 trillion Ris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 126,913 Ris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rihooka's national animal is the Guinea Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rihooka is ranked 3,196th in the world and 6th in Hippy Haven for Most Developed, scoring 94.73 on the Human Development Index.
