The Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Protector Henry Clayton with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.835 billion Ridanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardinal. The average income tax rate is 2.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ridanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,403 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 229,401 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Ridann successfully hosted the The Alliance of Dictators Olympics, Cardinal spends billions upgrading public transport, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridann's national animal is the Auroch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is unlisted due to secularism.
