The Empire of Rijelv

Population9.044 billion

LeaderQueen-Empress Sophia


The Imperial Commonwealth of The Empire of Rijelv is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen-Empress Sophia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.044 billion Rijelvians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lüsiia. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Rijelvian economy, worth a remarkable 3,811 trillion Jolvs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 421,453 Jolvs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, and all tariffs have been abolished. 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 206,342nd in the world and 8,080th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -1134.33 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
