The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Grand Protector with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.909 billion Uberstani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ultrapolis. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 7,637 trillion Lucres a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 283,811 Lucres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Mandatory blunting of cutlery has increased the popularity of soup-based meals, the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, the latest guided missile cruiser "Ship-1642" has received precisely zero column inches in the press, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridann's national animal is the Terrestrial Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a blend of state backed philosophies.

Ridann is ranked 206,940th in the world and 6,929th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 17.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
