The Commonwealth of Riechelburg is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The High Chancellor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.174 billion Riechelburgans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Voss. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Riechelburgian economy, worth 518 trillion Riechelmarks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 163,370 Riechelmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and destitute athletes are forced to train in the street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riechelburg's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Riechelburg is ranked 16,037th in the world and 831st in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 4,297.04 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
