The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26.117 billion Riems hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riemstagradgrad. The average income tax rate is 2.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Riem economy, worth a remarkable 2,097 trillion dinars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 80,329 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, and it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Riemstagrad's national animal is the agapornis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Heavy Metal.

Riemstagrad is ranked 123rd in belgium and 112,032nd in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -1,347.05 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
