The Principality of Rivello is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Prince Ren with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 7.433 billion Rivelloans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, 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 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rivelloan economy, worth a remarkable 1,081 trillion Prinzips a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,433 Prinzips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities run on potato batteries, tax avoidance is a serious affair, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, and new homeowners go furniture hunting with crowbars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rivello's national animal is the Crimson Gyrfalcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Reality.

Rivello is ranked 5,011th in the world and 163rd in the West Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 35 valid endorsements.
