The People's Grand Duchy of Risottia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Granduc Marc Primm with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 34.708 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 government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milan. The average income tax rate is 8.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Risottese economy, worth an astonishing 12,464 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 359,135 ghells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Intelligence services are renowned for their godless ways, foreign musicians that Granduc Marc Primm dislikes are turned away at the border, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. 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 4,302nd in the world and 82nd in the West Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 19,500.86 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
