The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.03 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.

Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and Riemstagrad-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways. 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 128th in belgium and 109,791st in the world for Most Average, scoring -539 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
