The Stratocracy of Ribanzi is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Commander with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.531 billion Ribans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moonlight. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Riban economy, worth 844 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 239,124 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ribanzi's national animal is the commando, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bushido.

Ribanzi is ranked 168,600th in the world and 6,243rd in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 3.53 Obesity Rate.
