Featured nation March 2019: Rihan

The Great Republic of Rihan


"Talla e'na Rheilhhu."

National Animal: Mogai Eagle

Currency: Chak

Double honours are a rare event. But one can only agree with Seylos in his choice of successor. Seylos nominated Rihan based on his writings for In the Shadows ( "It does an excellent job of showing off Rihan culture both civilian and military and keeping itself grounded in reality. It's the perfect way to utilize an expansion RP and I've learned a lot more about Rihan as a country which is what makes it so engrossing. I'm rooting for Morror to get his city. I can't ignore that that RP for last month was basically the best on the forums."

The Great Republic of Eisn is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Praetor Mathon Terix with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 1.463 billion Rihannsu are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dartha. The average income tax rate is 35.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Rihannsu economy, worth 91.3 trillion Chaks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,420 Chaks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Daily newspapers are permitted to run only pro-government stories, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eisn's national animal is the Mogai Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is D'era.
