The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Protector Alonso Word with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.967 billion Uberstani 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardinal City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 5,876 trillion Lucres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 255,865 Lucres, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, the nation has always been at war with Moltovea, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, and textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridann's national animal is the Terrestrial Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a blend of state backed philosophies.

Ridann is ranked 2,196th in the world and 45th in The East Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 230.13 Kickbacks Per Hour.
