The Republic of Rizalinas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Alexa Cortez with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.94 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 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rizalino economy, worth 258 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 133,056 rians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The question of 'what is President Alexa Cortez's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, and coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list. 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 146,793rd in the world and 7,401st in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -12.81 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
