OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Imperial Republic of Rutianas is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Shein Darson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.47 billion Rutians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rutia. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and lending firms are subject to strict government regulations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Rutianas's national animal is the Meerkat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is whatever, and its currency is the Runai.

Rutianas is ranked 2nd in Korel and 10,229th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 64 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
