The Uberstani Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Protector Henry Sparov with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.325 billion Uberstani are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardinal City. The average income tax rate is 9.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 3,949 trillion Republic 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 241,928 Republic Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Abortions are routinely performed in Ridann's hospitals, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations. 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 Terrestrial Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is unlisted due to secularism.
