The Holy Imperium of Rivine is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Ralthorne with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, lack of airports, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.93 billion Riveans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nirn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 85.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rivinean economy, worth 962 trillion Rens a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 244,805 Rens, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,225,250 per year while the poor average 27,471, a ratio of 44.6 to 1.

Requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, the stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from Emperor Ralthorne's rear echelons, red fabric is banned, and unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rivine's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Coruscate.

Rivine is ranked 24,534th in the world and 22nd in The League for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 54.29 Whatever.
