The Most Serene Republic of The Rivieras is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 642 million Rivierois 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Riviera. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rivierois economy, worth 56.2 trillion francs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,477 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rivieras's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Rivieras is ranked 48,997th in the world and 2,082nd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.72 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
