The People's Grand Duchy of Risottia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Granduc Marc Primm with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 25.856 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, with Defense, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milan. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Risottese economy, worth a remarkable 7,089 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 274,182 ghells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor, and in a baffling press conference Granduc Marc Primm proudly dismantled a broken door. Crime is totally unknown. Risottia's national animal is the watersnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Risottia is ranked 42,034th in the world and 1,194th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,489.36 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
