The People's Grand Duchy of Risottia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Granduc Marc Primm with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 24.973 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 is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milan. The average income tax rate is 29.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Risottese economy, worth a remarkable 6,270 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 Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 251,108 ghells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, torture is illegal, the endangered saltwater humpback watersnake is only seen in captivity programs, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime is totally unknown. Risottia's national animal is the watersnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Risottia is ranked 24,235th in the world and 292nd in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 5.72 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
