The Golden Empire of Rikuchar is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Empresses Faroguru and Nyrgraoru with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.384 billion Rikutsarenkog are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiselux. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Rikutsaren economy, worth a remarkable 1,027 trillion Kazelas 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 139,194 Kazelas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, cities are engulfed by smog, voting is compulsory, and the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rikuchar's national animal is the Kazeotsyseu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rikuchar is ranked 2,149th in the world and 6th in Wintreath for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 10,197.42 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
