The Mezalene Empire of Lake Flotillas is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Francis III with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.606 billion 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Delta. The average income tax rate is 66.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Riverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,412 trillion Water Crystals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 185,676 Water Crystals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, conspiracy theorists allege Fort Delta's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, mechanics are often exhausted by their work, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime is totally unknown. Lake Flotillas's national animal is the Merlion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Phoenixism.

Lake Flotillas is ranked 9,383rd in the world and 473rd in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 1,412 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
