The Most Ancient Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Grand Protector with an iron fist, and notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 33.417 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 medium-sized, corrupt 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 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 9,874 trillion Lucres a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 295,505 Lucres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, charity workers were first up against the wall when the time came, and the government is a law unto itself. 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 185,562nd in the world and 3,303rd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 39 on the Rand Index.
