The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.878 billion Riems enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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.

Rap artists are regularly jailed for promoting extremist groups, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the wreckages of bombed planes that litter Riemstagrad are highly popular tourist destinations, and the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS. 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 125th in belgium and 119,172nd in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -81 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
