The Republic of Ridehale is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Victor Anderson-Gula with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.217 billion Ridehaleans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Major Weston King. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ridehalean economy, worth 885 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,775 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, and politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridehale's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ridehale is ranked 17,796th in the world and 520th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 82.51 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
