The Republic of Rilandse is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.809 billion Rilandsens 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greenhorn. The average income tax rate is 21.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rilandsen economy, worth 177 trillion Rilandse dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 97,875 Rilandse dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, the government has become increasingly militant, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rilandse's national animal is the Rilandsen Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rilandse is ranked 82,842nd in the world and 1st in Cavardille for Most Politically Free, scoring 68.95 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
