The Republic of Rydeum is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 429 million Rydeans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cabisera. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ryden economy, worth 37.4 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,117 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, and acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rydeum's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rydeum is ranked 56,132nd in the world and 2,984th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,033.56 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
