The Republic of Rio Santo is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Graciela Candelaria with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 7.746 billion Rioneros enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Toro. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rionero economy, worth 581 trillion Pesos a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,078 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Euthanasia is legal, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rio Santo's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rio Santo is ranked 28,919th in the world and 5th in United Nations for Highest Poor Incomes, with 58,062.02 Standard Monetary Units.
