Location: The East Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Federal Republic of Ripsylvania is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Parliament with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 865 million Ripsylvanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breitenfeld. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ripsylvanian economy, worth 59.9 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 69,247 scritches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ripsylvania's national animal is the Wooly Scragglemuffin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ripsylvania is ranked 56,782nd in the world and 2,370th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
