The Nigerian Zombie Empire of New Ryansville is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Ryan 5th with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, soft-spoken computers, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.505 billion New Ryansvilleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lagos. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Ryansvillean economy, worth 683 trillion New Ryansvillean dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 272,675 New Ryansvillean dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The people sing of those who will not be slaves again, Emperor Ryan 5th can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, Emperor Ryan 5th's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, and the government is trying to clean up all the rubbish that has washed up on the shores of Bigtopia and Marche Noire. Crime is totally unknown. New Ryansville's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

New Ryansville is ranked 14,755th in the world and 34th in Institute of Cellulose for Most Armed, with 4.75 weapons per person.
