The Principality of Riversedge is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Adriaan van Oranje with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-working population of 1.188 billion Riversedgeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redwater. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Riversedgean economy, worth 169 trillion ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 142,990 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and the Riversedgean Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riversedge's national animal is the banana slug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Riversedge is ranked 152,134th in the world and 7,665th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -349.86 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
