The           of Ripuaria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.79 billion Ripuarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ripuaria. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ripuarian economy, worth 907 trillion Linds a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,744 Linds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", and international tensions are high as Ripuaria threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ripuaria's national animal is the Sammy Coxall, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ripuaria is ranked 112,187th in the world and 46th in Sunalaya for Most Pro-Market, scoring 34.43 on the Rand Index.
