The Federal Republic of Ribbleton is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Neil with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.301 billion Ribbletonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grange. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ribbletonian economy, worth 172 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,567 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Most citizens in Ribbleton are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime is totally unknown. Ribbleton's national animal is the Harrier Hen, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ribbleton is ranked 10,636th in the world and 484th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,970.34 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
