The Republic of Hayden Rivers is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by 48191 with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.366 billion Riversians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Windsor. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Riverisan economy, worth 390 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,851 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hayden Rivers's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.
