The Galactic Empire of Riptaria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by general degaras with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.406 billion Riptarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with International Aid and Environment not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of riptaria city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.8%.

The all-consuming Riptarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,656 trillion ripions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 375,869 ripions, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign nationals are widely distrusted, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', soldiers are equipped with multi-million ripion battlesuits, and suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riptaria's national animal is the Slave, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is atheism.

Riptaria is ranked 18,516th in the world and 2nd in The United Federations for Most Extreme, scoring 37.61 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
