Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Protector Henry Clayton with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.482 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardinal. The average income tax rate is 2.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ridanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,250 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 common. Average income is an amazing 224,478 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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.

Ridann is ranked 21st in The Alliance of Dictators and 6,259th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
