The People's Grand Duchy of Risottia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Granduc Marc Primm with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 32.988 billion Risottians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milan. The average income tax rate is 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Risottese economy, worth an astonishing 11,254 trillion ghells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 341,157 ghells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gift hampers filled with delicious beef jerky are sent to newly communist nations, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, sex changes are routinely performed at Risottia's hospitals, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Risottia's national animal is the watersnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Risottia is ranked 769th in the world and 18th in the West Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 373.67 insults per minute.
