The Principality of Rivello is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Grand Prince Ren with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.093 billion Rivelloans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravel. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rivelloan economy, worth 786 trillion Prinzips a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,435 Prinzips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, Rivelloan tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rivello's national animal is the Crimson Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Reality.

Rivello is ranked 74,036th in the world and 2,601st in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,470.7 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
