The Democratic Republic of Richterdris is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 735 million Richterdrisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Richterdrisian economy, worth 79.8 trillion Reichmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 108,601 Reichmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is a silent spring in Richterdris, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, diplomatic cables about Leader have suddenly been very flattering, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Richterdris's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Richterdris is ranked 145,467th in the world and 4,722nd in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 54 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
