The Money State of Centralis Ripam is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Euripides Erdmann with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, avowedly heterosexual populace, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.365 billion Ripamians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centralis Ripam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ripamian economy, worth a remarkable 2,697 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 502,848 Euros, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

High school bands practice by moonlight, cute fluffy little Euripides Erdmanns are increasingly popular exotic pets, the government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Centralis Ripam after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Centralis Ripam's national animal is the Wild Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Centralis Ripam is ranked 153,995th in the world and 4th in Elemental Nations for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -32.71 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
