Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Protector Henry Clayton with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.682 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 3.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ridanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,294 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 224,401 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, and reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees. 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 20th in The Alliance of Dictators and 9,195th in the world for Best Weather, with 60 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
