The Empirical Empire of Kevin Ruddistan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Eternal Dear Leader Rudd with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.657 billion 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."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruddtopia. The average income tax rate is 72%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.
Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, guns are banned, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kevin Ruddistan's national animal is the Julia Gillard Rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Ruddislam - The way of dear Leader, and its currency is the KEV Dollar.
