The Imperial Islands of Riecham is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Alyssia Caledonii with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 25.824 billion Riechese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caledonia. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Riechese economy, worth a remarkable 3,172 trillion Rylads a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 122,840 Rylads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, the big red machine has ground to a halt, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riecham's national animal is the Whitecomb Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Riecham is ranked 243,396th in the world and 27th in Absolution for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
