The Federal Republic of Riogrande is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Bernard Randal with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 954 million Riograndenses hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riogrande City. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Riograndean economy, worth 70.1 trillion Pilas a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 73,435 Pilas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
'.lib' or '.con' domains indicate whether Riograndean websites are meant for liberals or conservatives, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, Bernard Randal has just been declared ruler of Riogrande in an international press conference, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riogrande's national animal is the Anteater, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
