The Provisional Government of Rileyapolis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Provisional Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.397 billion Citizens are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Fe. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Citizen economy, worth a remarkable 3,700 trillion Votes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,785 Votes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new biography of The Provisional Governor is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb", hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", The Provisional Governor is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. Crime is totally unknown. Rileyapolis's national animal is the Rhino, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholism.

Rileyapolis is ranked 43,218th in the world and 37th in Social Liberal Union for Most Extreme, scoring 28.25 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
