The Dictatorship of Rishiku is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 597 million Rishikuans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rishiku City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.0%.

The all-consuming Rishikuan economy, worth 66.5 trillion Rishis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,443 Rishis, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Sushi is sold on the black market, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Rishi charge on their phone bill, major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, and Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Rishikuan officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rishiku's national animal is the Rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rishiku is ranked 55,329th in the world and 1,769th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,871.04 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
