Rusticus I Damianus

Population5.236 billion

LeaderThe Philosopher King


The Empire of Rusticus I Damianus is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Philosopher King with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 5.236 billion Raxulans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Healthcare, with Administration, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panticapaeum. The average income tax rate is 18.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Raxulan economy, worth 284 trillion Dragaris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,401 Dragaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Rusticus I Damianus has designated Panticapaeum as its capital city, The Philosopher King has just been declared ruler of Rusticus I Damianus in an international press conference, and a major religion has been named as Rusticus I Damianus's national religion. Crime is almost non-existent. Rusticus I Damianus's national animal is the Draco, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rusticus I Damianus is ranked 101,947th in the world and 7th in Raxulan Empire for Most Devout, with 414.82 prayers per hour.
