The Federation of Rivogna is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 254 million Rivognans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuova Venezia. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Rivognan economy, worth 15.2 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 59,720 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Rivogna has designated Nuova Venezia as its capital city, lobster tastes best when it is red, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Rivognan officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rivogna's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
