The Disputed Territories of The Ridgeway Monster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory gun ownership, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.372 billion Ridgeway Monsterians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 6.6%.

The powerhouse Ridgeway Monsterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,500 trillion prints a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 81,649 prints, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, and Leader has just been declared ruler of The Ridgeway Monster in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Ridgeway Monster's national animal is the Michigan dog man, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Ridgeway Monster is ranked 3,796th in the world and 2nd in Michigan for Most Armed, with 11.5 Weapons Per Person.
