The Colony of Rigiaball is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Matthew with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 2.449 billion Rigiaballians 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 Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 30.9%.

The Rigiaballian economy, worth 103 trillion Vires a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,370 Vires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, artists are pillars of society, King Matthew has just been declared ruler of Rigiaball in an international press conference, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rigiaball's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rigiaball is ranked 87,589th in the world and 1st in Debate Region of the Rhine for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45.83 on the Rand Index.
