The Blessed Transmatriarchy of Riveraland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Elena IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 6.73 billion Riverans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lesbos. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Riveran economy, worth 568 trillion petals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 84,444 petals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Riveran weed picker are way up, the fattest folk in Riveraland look to be the happiest ones, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Queen Elena IV day after day. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riveraland's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Trans-Sophianism.

Riveraland is ranked 229,578th in the world and 7,510th in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
