Rikos Isles

The Sultanate of Rikos Isles is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 847 million Rikas are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seast. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rikolian economy, worth 77.9 trillion Rika kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 91,929 Rika kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Document forgery is a critical skill for would-be politicians, many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers, military barracks resemble five-star hotels, and Rikolian Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rikos Isles's national animal is the Rika Ray, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rikos Isles is ranked 249,758th in the world and 9,398th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -10.25 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
