The Republic of Rig Party is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.338 billion Rig Party Members are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 38.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rig Party Member economy, worth 212 trillion pink slips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 91,011 pink slips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, Lynx is one of the most popular forenames in Rig Party, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Rig Party Member Navy, and criminals are thrown to the lynxes to repay their debt to society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rig Party's national animal is the lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rig Party is ranked 192,740th in the world and 238th in Wintreath for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 35.32 on the Hayek Index.
