The Federal Republic of Ripsylvania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Gustavus with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.421 billion Ripsylvanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breitenfeld. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ripsylvanian economy, worth 273 trillion scritches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 112,938 scritches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, anti-government web sites are springing up, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime is totally unknown. Ripsylvania's national animal is the Wooly Scragglemuffin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ripsylvania is ranked 25,380th in the world and 770th in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 77.59 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
