The Community of Riestenben is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Abra Labrador with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The democratic population of 3.585 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bizisi. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Riestenbenian economy, worth 345 trillion Brownieses a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,326 Brownieses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements. 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 70,011th in the world and 3,699th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 40.07 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
