The Republic of Rivogna is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Martino Boni with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.504 billion Rivognans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuova Venezia. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rivognan economy, worth 197 trillion lire a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,631 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, and the government seizes all major gold finds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rivogna's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rivogna is ranked 20,551st in the world and 55th in Thaecia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,409.64 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
