The Dominion of Riam is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 350 million Riamencs 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 prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castell Tanyersac. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Riamenc economy, worth 35.3 trillion gold aurs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,838 gold aurs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, the government is spending billions of taxpayer gold aurs to support "struggling" industries, and school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Riam's national animal is the foc follet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Riam is ranked 61,252nd in the world and 1st in Hiperuranion for Largest Governments, scoring 17 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
