The Principality of Riversedge is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Adriaan van Oranje with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, unlimited-speed roads, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.964 billion Riversedgeans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redwater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Riversedgean economy, worth 378 trillion ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 192,966 ducats, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.
Riversedgeans seem to be catching more chills, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, and diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riversedge's national animal is the banana slug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
