The People's Grand Duchy of Risottia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Granduc Marc Primm with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 30.206 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 aren't funded at all. 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 9,652 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 319,551 ghells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Risottia's radio stations, foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Risottia, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning. Crime is totally unknown. Risottia's national animal is the watersnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Risottia is ranked 870th in the world and 23rd in the West Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 97.46 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
