The Republic of Ridehale is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Victor Anderson-Gula with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.768 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, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Major Weston King. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ridehalean economy, worth 617 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,063 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Ridehale. 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 139,455th in the world and 6,710th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.52 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
