The Galactic Empire of Riptaria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by general degaras with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.77 billion Riptarians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while International Aid and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of riptaria city. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Riptarian economy, worth a remarkable 4,696 trillion ripion doller and pound ripions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 535,468 ripion doller and pound ripions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A new apartment is worth a thousand betrayals, Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riptaria's national animal is the slave, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Riptaria is ranked 254,271st in the world and 84th in The United Federations for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -14.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
