The Dominion of Neruch is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Lord with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.234 billion Neruchians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neruchia. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Neruchian economy, worth 184 trillion credits 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 149,746 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, the deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on The Lord's desk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neruch's national animal is the platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Neruch is ranked 164,961st in the world and 6,220th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 35.59 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
