The Federal Republic of The Ricebenders is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 524 million Ricsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of National City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.
The very strong Ricsian economy, worth 40.5 trillion Rice Cakes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 77,262 Rice Cakes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 228,204 per year while the poor average 20,564, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.
Tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity, and refugees from other nations are flocking to The Ricebenders's border. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ricebenders's national animal is the Muskrat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
