The Principality of Riversedge is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Adriaan van Oranje with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.53 billion Riversedgeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redwater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Riversedgean economy, worth a remarkable 1,030 trillion ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 291,798 ducats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 971,210 per year while the poor average 65,328, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and judicial torture is outsourced overseas. Crime is totally unknown. Riversedge's national animal is the banana slug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Riversedge is ranked 3,703rd in the world and 209th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.23 on the Human Development Index.
