The Riverside Van of Lemonadia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lionel Anahi with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.042 billion Lemonads love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MarvInVangrad. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lemonadian economy, worth 334 trillion Marbles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 109,812 Marbles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lemonadia's national animal is the Polar Cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Godsiniaism.

Lemonadia is ranked 200,539th in the world and 386th in Thaecia for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
