The Principality of Riversedge is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Adriaan van Oranje with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.465 billion Riversedgeans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redwater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Riversedgean economy, worth 998 trillion ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 288,260 ducats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 983,907 per year while the poor average 62,145, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.

Passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-ducat charge on their phone bill, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, and citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing. Crime is totally unknown. Riversedge's national animal is the banana slug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Riversedge is ranked 8,853rd in the world and 498th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.45 Years.
