The Stratocracy of Ribanzi is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Commander with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.992 billion Ribans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Riban economy, worth a remarkable 1,488 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, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 248,343 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves, citizens must have a license to operate a computer, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year. 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 1,139th in the world and 31st in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.18 on the Human Development Index.
