The Republic of Ridnez is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by HE Andreas Bombardone with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 856 million Ridnezites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centro Nuovo. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ridnezite economy, worth 91.8 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,252 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals are thrown to the eagles to repay their debt to society, bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, thrift shops are closing their doors, and the true length of the coastline of Ridnez may never be measured. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

Ridnez is ranked 13,018th in the world and 90th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 56.66 Whatever.
