The Great Northern Hegemony of Saint Ryvern is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Czar Vadim Bogomolov with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.649 billion Ryvernians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freehold. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ryvernian economy, worth a remarkable 1,855 trillion Marks 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 192,337 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the SRBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Saint Ryvern, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Ryvern's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ryvernian Orthodoxy.

Saint Ryvern is ranked 25,361st in the world and 51st in Thaecia for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.38 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
