|Faith||The Temple of Umbra|
The Republic of Ridnez is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by HE Andreas Bombardone with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, otherworldly petting zoo, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.963 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 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ridnezite economy, worth 287 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,335 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
You don't need a smoking gun to arrest someone for promoting guns, residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, grim instructresses lead the unwillingly impregnated in chants of "it's all my fault" and "blessed be the fruit", and nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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.
