Ridgefielders

The Town of Ridgefielders is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.31 billion Ridgefielders live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The all-consuming local economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 trillion thalers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 138,446 thalers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 793,889 per year while the poor average 11,632, a ratio of 68.2 to 1.

Hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, pizzerias must now display shrines to the Pizza God, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ridgefielders's national animal is the quadripus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ridgefielders is ranked 7,435th in the world and 1st in Ridgefield for Most Pro-Market, scoring 92.11 on the Rand Index.
