The Republic of Rydeum is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.128 billion Rydeans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cabisera. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ryden economy, worth 104 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 92,609 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rydeum's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rydeum is ranked 15,521st in the world and 844th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 80.25 on the Human Development Index.
