The Dominion of Ripeka is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service and absence of drug laws. The devout population of 14 million Ripekans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 39.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ripekan economy, worth 544 billion Cereskian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,917 Cereskian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Police are arresting costumed characters at comic book conventions, bicyclists are banned from major roads, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ripeka's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Ripeka is ranked 95,526th in the world and 3,348th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 63.75 law-abiding acts per hour.
