The Riverside Kingdom of Rivierenland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Queen Margaret II and PM Eleanor Cohen with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.88 billion Rivierenlanders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utrecht. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rivierenlander economy, worth 482 trillion Guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 124,449 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rivierenland's national animal is the Swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Rivierenland is ranked 18,731st in the world and 268th in Europe for Highest Poor Incomes, with 76,018.18 Standard Monetary Units.
