The Destroyed World of Alma Ruma is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Governess Annette Dresden Von Windenburg with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 1.91 billion Alma Rumens are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruins of Astoria. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Alma Ruman economy, worth 134 trillion Köhns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 70,608 Köhns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Ruins of Astoria, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, clergy do their best to cover up their old tattoos, and the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alma Ruma's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Alma Rumen Catholicism.

Alma Ruma is ranked 67,909th in the world and 44th in Urana Firma for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,082.56 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
