Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Protector Henry Clayton with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.073 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 2,984 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 212,070 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Governments opposing Ridann are beset by rebels, notable individuals are granted land and titles, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. 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 171st in The Alliance of Dictators and 130,028th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -14 Whatever.
