The Imperial Federation of Retiva is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Yekaterina I with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.011 billion Retivans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pogarnova. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Retivan economy, worth a remarkable 3,459 trillion Revis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 287,986 Revis, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, Empress Yekaterina I's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Pogarnova generates millions of views, skateparks can be found in every city, and ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas. Crime is totally unknown. Retiva's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Retiva is ranked 2,606th in the world and 1st in Aukumnia for Highest Economic Output, with 3,459 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
