Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Uberstani Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Protector Alberun Saducco with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.631 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 Sita Capetolla. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 4,248 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 240,978 Republic Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 701,950 per year while the poor average 65,406, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Rich people sell their mansions to pay for endless rows of mobile homes, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, the national anthem's only purpose is to inflate Protector Alberun Saducco's ever-expanding ego, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 175,836th in the world and 9,390th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.38 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
