The Archbishopric of Resivenia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by II Ecclesiastical Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.714 billion Resivenians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novae Avignon. The average income tax rate is 64.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Resiveni economy, worth 96.5 trillion Ducats a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,284 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Euthanasia is legal, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, anti-government web sites are springing up, and the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Resivenia's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Resivenia is ranked 22,468th in the world and 1,217th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,325.6 Tourists Per Hour.
