The Commonwealth of Riktoth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Atherea with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.332 billion Riktothians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eos. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Riktothian economy, worth 264 trillion Quanxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 113,584 Quanxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Riktoth's national animal is the Cougar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Riktoth is ranked 156,975th in the world and 4,626th in Osiris for Most Influential, scoring 29 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
