The Federal Republic of Ribbleton is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Neil with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 928 million Ribbletonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grange. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ribbletonian economy, worth 102 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,160 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Neil's most personal functions, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, only adults may purchase violent video games, and Ribbleton's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand. Crime is totally unknown. Ribbleton's national animal is the Harrier Hen, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ribbleton is ranked 163,920th in the world and 8,533rd in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19.29 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
