The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Grand Protector with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, enslaved workforce, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.425 billion Uberstani 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ultrapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 7,028 trillion Lucres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 276,442 Lucres, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 877,879 per year while the poor average 66,321, a ratio of 13.2 to 1.

Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridann's national animal is the Terrestrial Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a blend of state backed philosophies.

Ridann is ranked 6,893rd in the world and 200th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.84 Years.
