The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Grand Protector with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.771 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 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 7,927 trillion Lucres a year, is 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 285,465 Lucres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Ridann isn't what it used to be, the nation is wading into dangerous waters, the government-sponsored autobiography 'A the Grand Protector For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of the Grand Protector's supporters, and the stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from the Grand Protector's rear echelons. 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 214,245th in the world and 6,790th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -31.62 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
