The Federal Republic of Ripsylvania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Gustavus with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.794 billion Ripsylvanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breitenfeld. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ripsylvanian economy, worth 603 trillion scritches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 125,960 scritches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, the latest superhero movie features a caped Wooly Scragglemuffin with adamantium claws, and the little guy plays a big role in Ripsylvanian politics. Crime is totally unknown. Ripsylvania's national animal is the Wooly Scragglemuffin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ripsylvania is ranked 37,741st in the world and 1,892nd in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 66.93 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
