The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 32.649 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 3,598 trillion dinars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 110,215 dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 492,657 per year while the poor average 15,292, a ratio of 32.2 to 1.

The nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, and the government is lending a hand to private industry. 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 3,704th in the world and 3rd in belgium for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 410.99 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
