The Uberstani Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Protector Alberun Saducco with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.871 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 10.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 4,317 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 241,579 Republic Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 703,701 per year while the poor average 65,569, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.
Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, the national anthem's only purpose is to inflate Protector Alberun Saducco's ever-expanding ego, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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.
