The Empire of Reqovia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Regency Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.341 billion Reqovians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zalivok. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Reqovian economy, worth an astonishing 11,086 trillion Slashings a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 722,663 Slashings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Reqovian selfishness, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Reqovia's national animal is the Wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Paganism.

Reqovia is ranked 235,208th in the world and 398th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Highest Drug Use, scoring 4.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
