The Republic of Ridnez is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by HE Andreas Bombardone with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 880 million Ridnezites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centro Nuovo. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ridnezite economy, worth 94.4 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,270 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals are thrown to the eagles to repay their debt to society, bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, thrift shops are closing their doors, and the true length of the coastline of Ridnez may never be measured. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

Ridnez is ranked 9,599th in the world and 16th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Primitive, scoring 96.9 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
