The First Republic of Rivierenland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Eleanor Cohen with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.203 billion Rivierenlanders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utrecht. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rivierenlander economy, worth 617 trillion Guilders a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 118,702 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rivierenland's national animal is the Swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Rivierenland is ranked 4,660th in the world and 43rd in Europe for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 11,936.7 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
