The Scandinavian Kingdom of Rikara is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Søren II with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.243 billion Rikarans 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 Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Copenhagen. The average income tax rate is 55.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rikaran economy, worth 76.9 trillion Kroner a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,830 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rikara's national animal is the Driver Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Rikara is ranked 50,073rd in the world and 4th in United Bird Nations for Most Corrupt Governments, with 16.97 Kickbacks Per Hour.
