Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Kingdom of Runopa is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Wombaticus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 19.59 billion Runopans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Runopan economy, worth a remarkable 2,350 trillion polar crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry. Average income is an impressive 120,008 polar crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Runopa after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence. 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 55th in Antarctica and 103,063rd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 43 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
