The Meandering Voyage of Riverboat is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Skipper Sawyer Snodgrass with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.462 billion Deck Hands hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boiler Room. The average income tax rate is 72.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Nautical economy, worth 911 trillion pound sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 166,868 pound sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Riverboat's national animal is the Water Vole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sailor's Superstition.

Riverboat is ranked 12,849th in the world and 2nd in Yorkshire for Largest Governments, scoring 30.82 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
