Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of Riestenben is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The democratic population of 2.26 billion Riestenbenians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bizisi. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Riestenbenian economy, worth 226 trillion Brownieses a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,389 Brownieses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

There is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, and Leader's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riestenben's national animal is the Cream Buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Riestenben is ranked 132,318th in the world and 6,538th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.94 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
