The Empire of Fractured Ribs is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 190 million Fractured Ribsians 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 tiny, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The powerhouse Fractured Ribsian economy, worth 18.6 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 97,784 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 303,914 per year while the poor average 24,202, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

New government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Fractured Ribs, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and children must make a homemade spinach and ricotta rotolo by high school or be held back. Crime is relatively low. Fractured Ribs's national animal is the Porcupine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fractured Ribs is ranked 128,214th in the world and 6,320th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 328.76 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
