The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 45.45 billion Riems enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riemstagradgrad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Riem economy, worth a remarkable 7,044 trillion dinars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,003 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries, the news of budget cuts leaves a sour taste in Riem mouths, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and when flight control tells pilots to alter course the usual reply is "No, YOU move!". Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Riemstagrad's national animal is the agapornis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Heavy Metal.

Riemstagrad is ranked 830th in the world and 2nd in belgium for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 9,824.87 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
