The Holy Red Dwarf of Ace_ Rimmer is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ace Rimmer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 34.704 billion Dwarfers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of What A Guy City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ace_ Rimmerian economy, worth an astonishing 11,637 trillion curries a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 335,335 curries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

"Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ace_ Rimmer's national animal is the starbug, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Spacecorps Directives.

Ace_ Rimmer is ranked 243,536th in the world and 5th in Viking Europe for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
