The Martian theocracy of Riktur is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Fabricae-General Caltrar Basalius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.514 billion Rikturians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terrichgrad. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Rikturian economy, worth 113 trillion Marincies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 74,742 Marincies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, third world countries are rich in "I Love Terrichgrad" t-shirts, wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, and 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riktur's national animal is the Cyber-Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of the machine god.

Riktur is ranked 102,562nd in the world and 10th in Sceniverse for Highest Economic Output, with 113 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
