The Confederate Republic of Ranoria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Reimund Victor Riess with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 16.012 billion Ranorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richardson. The average income tax rate is 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ranorian economy, worth a remarkable 3,351 trillion Handels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 209,333 Handels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, every week is blindness awareness week, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ranoria's national animal is the Ranorian Wolfhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ranoria is ranked 55,574th in the world and 6th in Winterfell for Most Pro-Market, scoring 57.44 on the Rand Index.
