The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 29.908 billion Riems live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riemstagradgrad. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Riem economy, worth a remarkable 3,171 trillion dinars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 106,029 dinars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 339,396 per year while the poor average 25,144, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.
X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, and a belgium Tourist Association survey has rated Riemstagrad #1 for number twos. 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.
