The Socialist Republic of Ringnation is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ringater with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 5.937 billion Ringnationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ringopolis. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ringnationian economy, worth 397 trillion Ringoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 66,979 Ringoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ringnation's national animal is the awnhypia, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ringnation is ranked 180,168th in the world and 5,742nd in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 48.6 Whatever.
