The Kingdom of Ru- is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Yoshio with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 6.95 billion Ruvians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ru. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ruvian economy, worth a remarkable 1,513 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 217,812 Crowns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 796,264 per year while the poor average 42,262, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, third world countries are rich in "I Love New Ru" t-shirts, and nose plugs are the latest Ruvian fashion accessory. Crime is totally unknown. Ru-'s national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Faith of Cael.

Ru- is ranked 11,094th in the world and 4th in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 360.27 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
