The Democratic Union of New Rivia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime President Hugo Wirsing with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.335 billion Newrivians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geralt's Bridge. The average income tax rate is 71.0%.

The Newrivian economy, worth 284 trillion new newrivian ducats a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,453 new newrivian ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, Newrivian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns. Crime is totally unknown. New Rivia's national animal is the sea turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Rivia is ranked 10,051st in the world and 522nd in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 378.29 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
