The Blessed Transmatriarchy of Riveraland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Elena IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.179 billion Riverans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lesbos. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Riveran economy, worth 413 trillion petals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 79,865 petals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, the Riveraland Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riveraland's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Trans-Sophianism.

Riveraland is ranked 19,545th in the world and 621st in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 74,253.1 Standard Monetary Units.
