The Democratic Union of New Rivia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime President Hugo Wirsing with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.27 billion Newrivians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, 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 70.7%.

The Newrivian economy, worth 398 trillion new newrivian ducats a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 93,438 new newrivian ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. 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 150,799th in the world and 7,629th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -18.97 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
