The Constitutional Monarchy of Riviladanite is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 423 million Riviladaniteans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 14.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Riviladanitean economy, worth 17.2 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,751 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Riviladanite's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Riviladanite is ranked 137,213th in the world and 5,164th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 34.88 on the Rand Index.
