|Leader||Adriaan van Oranje|
The Principality of Riversedge is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Adriaan van Oranje with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.512 billion 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redwater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Riversedgean economy, worth 596 trillion ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 237,393 ducats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 709,001 per year while the poor average 62,202, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.
Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces. Crime is totally unknown. Riversedge's national animal is the banana slug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
