The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 38.889 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 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 5,857 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 150,617 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, and Riemstagrad's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. 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 190,313th in the world and 148th in belgium for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -7.29 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
