The People's Grand Duchy of Risottia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Granduc Marc Primm with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 38.652 billion Risottians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milan. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Risottese economy, worth an astonishing 14,413 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 372,916 ghells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, an increasing number of animal species are named 'Bob', snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Granduc Marc Primm's majority, and the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy. 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 278,449th in the world and 3,347th in the West Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 0.12 average smiles per day.
