The Stratocracy of Ribanzi is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Commander with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.71 billion Ribans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moonlight. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Riban economy, worth 889 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 239,882 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ribans have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors, the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ribanzi's national animal is the commando, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bushido.

Ribanzi is ranked 156,183rd in the world and 5,713th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.07 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
