The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Grand Protector with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.551 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 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 8,637 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 292,285 Lucres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 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 245,832nd in the world and 11,843rd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -52.56 on the Hayek Index.
