The Free Land of Rydolke is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Obreive with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.764 billion Rydolkeans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lydrel. The average income tax rate is 10.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rydolkean economy, worth 324 trillion anarchomarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 117,444 anarchomarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Rydolkean sovereign territory, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and nations that kill a Rydolkean can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Rydolke's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Liberty.

Rydolke is ranked 20,488th in the world and 1,043rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,358.65 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
