The Republic of Ritanstan is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 602 million Ritanstanians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rogue. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Ritanstanian economy, worth 47.0 trillion Ritanis a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,141 Ritanis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ritanstan's national animal is the Jerry, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
