The Money State of Centralis Ripam is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Euripides Erdmann with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.153 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centralis Ripam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ripamian economy, worth a remarkable 4,051 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 566,459 Euros, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,252,904 per year while the poor average 5,770, a ratio of 910 to 1.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Euro charge on their phone bill, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength. 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 4,595th in the world and 1st in Elemental Nations for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7,917.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
