Central Ryal

Population4.369 billion

CapitalCentral City
LeaderYevgeny Terenti


The United Socialist States of Central Ryal is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Yevgeny Terenti with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 4.369 billion Central Ryalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Central Ryalian economy, worth 691 trillion Aqes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,259 Aqes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's often raining men (hallelujah) in Central City, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Central Ryal's national animal is the Swallow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Central Ryal is ranked 805th in the world and 276th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 98,079 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
