The Federation of Rivogna is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 237 million Rivognans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rivognan economy, worth 13.0 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Information Technology. Average income is 55,017 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, tourists are duped into trimming hedges for the horsy-set, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rivogna's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rivogna is ranked 127,979th in the world and 157th in Thaecia for Rudest Citizens, with 45.33 Insults Per Minute.
