The Empire of Rijelv

Population6.56 billion

LeaderQueen-Empress Sophia


The Imperial Commonwealth of The Empire of Rijelv is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen-Empress Sophia with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.56 billion Rijelvians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lüsiia. The average income tax rate is 90.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Rijelvian economy, worth a remarkable 2,550 trillion Jolvs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 388,730 Jolvs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax Jolvs each year. Crime is totally unknown. The Empire of Rijelv's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secularism.

The Empire of Rijelv is ranked 12,922nd in the world and 454th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 5,150.04 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
