The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.431 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business 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.

Women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication, and agaporniss are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide. 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 137th in belgium and 121,903rd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -14 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
