The People's Grand Duchy of Risottia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Granduc Marc Primm with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 30.402 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, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Risottese economy, worth a remarkable 9,752 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 320,788 ghells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Risottese language, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Risottia, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and contestants on Risottia's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime is totally unknown. Risottia's national animal is the watersnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Risottia is ranked 131,583rd in the world and 3,801st in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 782.2 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
