The Town of Ridgefielders is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.206 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, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. The average income tax rate is 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient local economy, worth a remarkable 2,051 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 134,900 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

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 16,201st in the world and 2nd in Ridgefield for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 5,371.06 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
