The Victorian Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Protector Henry Clayton with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.185 billion Victorians 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melbourne. The average income tax rate is 23%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Government officials across Ridann are being "encouraged" to adopt Leadbeater Possums to set an example for the populace, it is illegal to liberate slaves, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and Ridann's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridann's national animal is the Leadbeater Possum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is unlisted due to secularism, and its currency is the Credit.
