The Republic of Ridnez is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by HE Andreas Bombardone with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, prohibition of alcohol, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.992 billion Ridnezites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centro Nuovo. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ridnezite economy, worth 292 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,845 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is famous for bravely sending wave after wave of its soldiers until the enemy runs out of bullets, even God cannot save you in Ridnez, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and government projects are full of waste. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ridnez's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Temple of Umbra.

Ridnez is ranked 242,309th in the world and 297th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Inclusive, scoring 7.34 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
