The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Grand Protector with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.622 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 Ultrapolis. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 7,465 trillion Lucres a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 280,440 Lucres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth. 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 3,369th in the world and 112th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,196.39 Tourists Per Hour.
