The Dominion Lands of The ruivan Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Perron with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.563 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, socially-minded government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ruvian economy, worth a remarkable 2,563 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 176,000 Ruivs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, Emperor Perron's mistress is the belle at many state balls, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, and companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes. 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.
