The People's Grand Duchy of Risottia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Granduc Marc Primm with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 34.739 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milan. The average income tax rate is 8.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Risottese economy, worth an astonishing 12,491 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 359,585 ghells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Granduc Marc Primm's wardrobe, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. 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 274,340th in the world and 9,321st in the West Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 3.15 Obesity Rate.
