The Startling Empire of Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Farao Rambert IV with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 39.835 billion Riems live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riemstagradgrad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Riem economy, worth a remarkable 5,967 trillion dinars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 149,811 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens hear a diversity of opinions from a range of billionaire-owned corporations, the government thinks Riems can achieve social cohesion by drinking soda together, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Riemstagrad's national animal is the agapornis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Heavy Metal.

Riemstagrad is ranked 794th in the world and 3rd in belgium for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 9,634.23 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
