The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 37.044 billion Riems live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riemstagradgrad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Riem economy, worth a remarkable 5,377 trillion dinars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 145,169 dinars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 758,734 per year while the poor average 14,926, a ratio of 50.8 to 1.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Riemstagrad's national animal is the agapornis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Heavy Metal.

Riemstagrad is ranked 178,806th in the world and 159th in belgium for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -46.37 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
