The Nigerian Empire of New Ryansville is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Ryan 5th with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.301 billion New Ryansvilleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lagos. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Ryansvillean economy, worth a remarkable 1,097 trillion New Ryansvillean dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 255,087 New Ryansvillean dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, many friends and relatives of Emperor Ryan 5th have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, real chickens replace rooster weather vanes on inner-city rooftop gardens, and rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Ryansville's national animal is the West African Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

New Ryansville is ranked 17,020th in the world and 21st in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,604.1 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
