The Uberstani Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Protector Alberun Saducco with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.431 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 Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sita Capetolla. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 4,496 trillion Republic Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 243,978 Republic Credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, and East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy'. 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 70,844th in the world and 3,164th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,694.08 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
