The Very Militaristic Republic of Rogue River is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 695 million Riverians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illatum Defenderent. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Riverian economy, worth 89.6 trillion Grand Peppian Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 128,971 Grand Peppian Florins, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Riverian military unleashed its biological weapons, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rogue River's national animal is the military equipped laser shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Rogue River is ranked 11,478th in the world and 1st in Grand Peppian Commonwealth for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 25,270.78 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
