The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Protector Alonso Word with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.858 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 Cardinal City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 6,122 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. Average income is an amazing 256,601 Lucres, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long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 128,157th in the world and 5,651st in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 15.14 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
