The Dominion of Neruch is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Lord with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.726 billion Neruchians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neruchia. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Neruchian economy, worth 639 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 171,694 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's said that The Lord can turn every pleasure into a chore, sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, and armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough. 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 24,859th in the world and 477th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 628.89069473192 Days.
