The Republic of Rizalinas is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Alexa Cortez with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.959 billion Rizalinos are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tagazpi. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rizalino economy, worth 261 trillion rians a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,562 rians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, President Alexa Cortez's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rizalinas's national animal is the great white shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Rizalinas is ranked 42,271st in the world and 2,224th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,240.94 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
