The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.739 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, liberal 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.

There have been reports of people marrying housepets, the roads are virtually falling apart, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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 4th in belgium and 2,204th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 319 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
