The Empire of Ritterdorf is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.315 billion Ritterdorfians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ritterdorfia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ritterdorfian economy, worth a remarkable 1,878 trillion rittergolds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 353,407 rittergolds, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Ritterdorfian pirates, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings". Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ritterdorf's national animal is the knight, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Way of the Knight.

Ritterdorf is ranked 3,270th in the world and 29th in New Western Empire for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 40 Valid Endorsements.
