Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Uberstani Grand Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Protector Henry Fortuna with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.997 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 Cardinal. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 4,643 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 244,448 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 146,441st in the world and 5,492nd in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.62 Crimes Per Hour.
