The Empire of Rijelv

Population6.391 billion

LeaderQueen-Empress Sophia


The Imperial Commonwealth of The Empire of Rijelv is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen-Empress Sophia with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.391 billion Rijelvians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lüsiia. The average income tax rate is 90.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Rijelvian economy, worth a remarkable 2,502 trillion Jolvs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 391,550 Jolvs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

A small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, the tenet of free speech is held dear, dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, and The Empire of Rijelv's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown. The Empire of Rijelv's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secularism.

The Empire of Rijelv is ranked 159,220th in the world and 6,044th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 42.18 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
