The Federal Republic of Ripsylvania is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Gustavus with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.026 billion Ripsylvanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large 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 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ripsylvanian economy, worth 368 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 121,793 scritches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, and residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling. 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 127,230th in the world and 3,695th in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,265.17 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
