The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 31.005 billion Riems live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. 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 3,338 trillion dinars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 107,676 dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 411,633 per year while the poor average 19,463, a ratio of 21.1 to 1.

Tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Riemstagradgrad as a backdrop, future leaders of Riemstagrad regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low. 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 10,390th in the world and 39th in belgium for Largest Black Market, with 20.9 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
