The Principality of Riversedge is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 660 million 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 52.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Riversedgean economy, worth 79.3 trillion ducats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,181 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, and the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
