The Riemstagrad

The Empire of The Riemstagrad is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.499 billion Riemstagradians 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 minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Law & Order and Spirituality not funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Riemstagradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,259 trillion Denaris a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 93,272 Denaris, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 346,662 per year while the poor average 17,633, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Village elders are often called in to interpret voting outcomes in Parliament, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in The Riemstagrad' is a smash hit, if a tree falls in the forest Leader is personally notified, and politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Riemstagrad's national animal is the Agapornis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Riemstagrad is ranked 14,475th in the world and 31st in Equilism for Highest Economic Output, with 1,259 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
