The Republic of Rizalinas is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Alexa Cortez with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.252 billion Rizalinos are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tagazpi. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rizalino economy, worth 153 trillion rians a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,842 rians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rizalinas's national animal is the great white shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Rizalinas is ranked 110,166th in the world and 6,047th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 191.14 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
