The Dominion Lands of The ruivan Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Perron with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.856 billion Ruivans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ruvian economy, worth a remarkable 2,609 trillion Ruivs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,641 Ruivs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The ruivan Empire's national animal is the Ruivan Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Atheism.
