The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.531 billion Riems hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riemstagradgrad. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, healthcare funding has been cut, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Riemstagrad's national animal is the agapornis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Heavy Metal, and its currency is the dinar.

Riemstagrad is ranked 107th in belgium and 108,811th in the world for Best Weather, with -317 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
