The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Protector Alonso Word with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, aversion to nipples, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.894 billion Uberstani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardinal City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 6,131 trillion Lucres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 256,601 Lucres, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridann's national animal is the Terrestrial Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a blend of state backed philosophies.

Ridann is ranked 10,062nd in the world and 273rd in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 380.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
