The Federal Republic of The Ricebenders is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 684 million Ricsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of National City. The average income tax rate is 46.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ricsian economy, worth 51.6 trillion Rice Cakes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 75,451 Rice Cakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ricebenders's national animal is the Muskrat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Ricebenders is ranked 61,425th in the world and 3,538th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
