The Republic of Ridgeway SP is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 504 million Ridgeway SPians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Ridgeway SPian economy, worth 5.66 trillion flamethrowers a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 11,235 flamethrowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridgeway SP's national animal is the Phoenix.
