The Riverside Van of Lemonadia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lionel Anahi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.193 billion Lemonads enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MarvInVangrad. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lemonadian economy, worth 350 trillion Marbles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,688 Marbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, foreign despots proudly bandstand on Lemonadian airwaves, police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lemonadia's national animal is the Polar Cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Godsiniaism.

Lemonadia is ranked 5,186th in the world and 14th in Thaecia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,369.74 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
