The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 38.207 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, liberal, pro-business government prioritizes Education, with Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. 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 5,770 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 151,024 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. 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 207,111th in the world and 179th in belgium for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -32.89 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
