The Grand Duchy of Riode is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 1.941 billion Riodeans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The relatively small government prioritizes Law & Order, although Healthcare, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 13.6%.
The Riodean economy, worth 97.9 trillion lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is 50,452 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.
Noble feuds don't end until one side gets their point across, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Riode in an international press conference. Crime is moderate. Riode's national animal is the elephant.
