The Confederate Republic of Ranoria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Melanie von Krüger with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.65 billion Ranorians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richardson. The average income tax rate is 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ranorian economy, worth a remarkable 3,908 trillion Handels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 221,463 Handels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, the study of medicine is popular throughout Ranoria, and stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents. 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 1,784th in the world and 1st in Winterfell for Rudest Citizens, with 251.41 Insults Per Minute.
