The Commonwealth of Riversa is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 768 million Riversians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The powerhouse Riversan economy, worth 56.4 trillion Tiantas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 73,404 Tiantas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 276,856 per year while the poor average 13,557, a ratio of 20.4 to 1.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", gun ownership is compulsory, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Riversa's national animal is the River Peacock, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Riversa is ranked 5,541st in the world and 268th in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,550.15 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
