The Republic of Ridehale is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Victor Anderson-Gula with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.246 billion Ridehaleans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Major Weston King. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ridehalean economy, worth 887 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,603 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, and politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridehale's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ridehale is ranked 4,596th in the world and 188th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,726.33 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
