The Empire of Rijelv

Population7.288 billion

LeaderQueen-Empress Sophia


The Imperial Commonwealth of The Empire of Rijelv is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen-Empress Sophia with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.288 billion Rijelvians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lüsiia. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Rijelvian economy, worth a remarkable 2,711 trillion Jolvs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 372,083 Jolvs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, and the children of The Empire of Rijelv are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime is totally unknown. The Empire of Rijelv's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secularism.

The Empire of Rijelv is ranked 2,445th in the world and 58th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 22,957.34 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
