The Republic of Rilandse is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 610 million 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greenhorn. The average income tax rate is 15.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rilandsen economy, worth 63.3 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. Average income is an impressive 103,843 Rilandse dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 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 90,367th in the world and 22nd in Novus Lucidum for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,998.19 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
