The Riverside Kingdom of Rivierenland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Margaret II and PM Eleanor Cohen with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.437 billion Rivierenlanders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utrecht. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Rivierenlander economy, worth 452 trillion Guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 131,521 Guilders, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rivierenland's national animal is the Swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Rivierenland is ranked 78,876th in the world and 53rd in South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.4 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
