Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Uberstani Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Protector Henry Brezhnev with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.327 billion Uberstani 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 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 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 4,226 trillion Republic Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 243,903 Republic Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Retired racing Terrestrial Raptors are served truffles for breakfast, a The East Pacific Tourist Association survey has rated Ridann #1 for number twos, the government funds large training centres to turn Terrestrial Raptors into functioning members of society, and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low. 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 a blend of state backed philosophies.

Ridann is ranked 174,820th in the world and 11,655th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 8 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
