The Federated States of Ridann is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Protector Henry Bolthrow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.974 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardinal. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
The art of conversation has been rediscovered, citizens who refuse to vote are guillotined, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year. 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 Auroch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is unlisted due to secularism, and its currency is the Credit.
