The Empire of Rijelv

Population8.836 billion

LeaderQueen-Empress Sophia


The Imperial Commonwealth of The Empire of Rijelv is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen-Empress Sophia with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.836 billion Rijelvians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, 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 Lüsiia. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rijelvian economy, worth a remarkable 3,762 trillion Jolvs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 425,770 Jolvs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified, the The Empire of Rijelv Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', The Empire of Rijelv's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, and textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be. 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 4,844th in the world and 129th in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 109.42 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
