The Republic of Ritual Proof is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.477 billion Ritual Proofians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.2%.

The strong Ritual Proofian economy, worth 287 trillion tsanes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Gambling. Average income is 44,346 tsanes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 126,786 per year while the poor average 12,355, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ritual Proof's national animal is the fainting wilet, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ritual Proof is ranked 124,495th in the world and 7th in Iran for Most Influential, scoring 69 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
