The Ancient Uberstani Republic of Ridann is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Grand Protector with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.947 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 Ultrapolis. The average income tax rate is 47.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Uberstani economy, worth a remarkable 7,197 trillion Lucres a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 277,395 Lucres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 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Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long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 39,757th in the world and 1,440th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,825.21 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
