Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Runopa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Wombaticus with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, avowedly heterosexual populace, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 22.538 billion Runopans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taros. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Runopan economy, worth a remarkable 2,749 trillion polar crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 122,012 polar crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, the clergy of Roman Catholicism remains a single-sex institution, and church and state are inseparable in their influence on education. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Runopa's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Runopa is ranked 4,393rd in the world and 14th in Antarctica for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 12,390.17 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
