|Leader||HE Andreas Bombardone|
|Faith||The Temple of Umbra|
The Republic of Ridnez is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by HE Andreas Bombardone with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.797 billion Ridnezites 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centro Nuovo. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ridnezite economy, worth 260 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,853 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, black market eau de toilette is made in bathroom labs across the nation, the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, and religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridnez's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Temple of Umbra.
