The Democratic Republic of Rivage is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.378 billion Rivageans 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, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercator. The average income tax rate is 27.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rivagean economy, worth 376 trillion Denariis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,444 Denariis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Retirement homes are filled with foreign war criminals, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Rivagean roads, and agricultural employees work for peanuts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rivage's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Rivage is ranked 88,071st in the world and 2,578th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,423.47 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
