The Democratic Republic of Riance is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 312 million Riancans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 44.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Riancenne economy, worth 11.6 trillion Aldi quarters a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,047 Aldi quarters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riance's national animal is the carrier pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Riance is ranked 136,731st in the world and 1,462nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 363.13 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
