The Republic of Rydeum is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 246 million Rydeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 47.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Ryden economy, worth 21.2 trillion pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,290 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Glamping Rydeans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and on-duty Air Rydeum flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rydeum's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
