The Principality of Rivello is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Prince Ren with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.785 billion Rivelloans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravel. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rivelloan economy, worth 414 trillion Prinzips a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,720 Prinzips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, male celebrity chefs are laughed at for their lack of manliness, and neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rivello's national animal is the Crimson Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Reality.

Rivello is ranked 160,106th in the world and 6,274th in the West Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -38 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
