OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Victorian Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Protector Henry Clayton with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.618 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.

The enormous, corrupt government 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 14%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, skateparks can be found in every city, military spending recently hit a new high, 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.

Ridann is ranked 6th in Australia and 7,927th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 39 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
