The People's Grand Duchy of Risottia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Granduc Marc Primm with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.984 billion Risottians 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 relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milan. The average income tax rate is 40.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Risottese economy, worth a remarkable 7,973 trillion ghells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 295,478 ghells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the diplomatic corps stinks, and the justice of Risottia is considered superior to that of other nations. Crime is totally unknown. Risottia's national animal is the watersnake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Risottia is ranked 661st in the world and 15th in the West Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 94.29 Workforce Participation Rate.
