The Zinocan Republic of Rinotu is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Nicolav Marutoin with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.201 billion Rinotuans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Copacabana. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Rinotuan economy, worth 128 trillion Rins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,218 Rins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New Rinotuan taxis are fitted with server racks, the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rinotu's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rinotu is ranked 89,313th in the world and 3rd in Fredonia for Most Developed, scoring 58.01 on the Human Development Index.
