The First Republic of Rivierenland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Eleanor Cohen with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.472 billion Rivierenlanders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utrecht. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rivierenlander economy, worth 659 trillion Guilders a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 120,543 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 225,301st in the world and 1,256th in Europe for Most Primitive, scoring -502.78 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
