The Republic of Ridnez is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by HE Andreas Bombardone with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, prohibition of alcohol, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.786 billion Ridnezites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centro Nuovo. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ridnezite economy, worth 259 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,203 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridnez's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Temple of Umbra.

Ridnez is ranked 224,333rd in the world and 221st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.49 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
