The Commonwealth of Rio and John is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 735 million Rioians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riverton. The average income tax rate is 41.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rioian economy, worth 54.3 trillion Emeralds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,889 Emeralds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Rio and John flights to avoid the pay lavatories, biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime is totally unknown. Rio and John's national animal is the Black Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rio and John is ranked 156,649th in the world and 2nd in Rio European States for Most Extreme, scoring 13.57 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
