The United States of Ridmus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Nat Assembly President Van Hunter with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.715 billion Ridmusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twilight City. The average income tax rate is 63.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ridmusian economy, worth 259 trillion Ridlocks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 151,460 Ridlocks, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens often pray for divine guidance in supermarkets, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, and Ridmusians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridmus's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is None.

Ridmus is ranked 104,871st in the world and 3,909th in the Rejected Realms for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 50.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
