The Stratocracy of Ribanzi is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Commander with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.421 billion Ribans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moonlight. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Riban economy, worth a remarkable 1,065 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 240,916 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commander panders to nontraditional families, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ribanzi's national animal is the commando, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bushido.

Ribanzi is ranked 33,048th in the world and 1,312th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.82 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
