The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Protector Alonso Word with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, parental licensing program, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.991 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 31.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 5,882 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 255,865 Lucres, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, the nation has always been at war with Moltovea, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, and textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be. 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 169,277th in the world and 6,293rd in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 18.58 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
