The Free Land of Rydolke is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Obreive with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.53 billion Rydolkeans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lydrel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rydolkean economy, worth 303 trillion anarchomarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 119,834 anarchomarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 364,406 per year while the poor average 30,604, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Rydolkean sovereign territory, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Rydolke's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Liberty.

Rydolke is ranked 23,655th in the world and 1,363rd in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,733.33 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
