The Principality of Riversedge is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Adriaan van Oranje with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.784 billion Riversedgeans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redwater. The average income tax rate is 72.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Riversedgean economy, worth 326 trillion ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 182,843 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Concussed banana slugball players cannot remember their lineup position, Riversedge is renowned for its lax gun laws, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riversedge's national animal is the banana slug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Riversedge is ranked 15,550th in the world and 680th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,519.08 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
