Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Insane Lords of Riveti is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Lord Clarke with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.729 billion Rivetish are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vontz. The average income tax rate is 71.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Rivetish economy, worth 259 trillion Jaegs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 149,798 Jaegs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, High Lord Clarke's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, increasing numbers of children in Riveti have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, and preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riveti's national animal is the Black Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Originism.

Riveti is ranked 164,071st in the world and 290th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -87.33 on the Hayek Index.
