The Republic of Ralphburg is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ralph the terrier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.399 billion Ralphburgers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ralphburg Island. The average income tax rate is 21.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ralphburgian economy, worth 473 trillion Dogecoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 197,305 Dogecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, the entire entry for Ralphburg in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ralphburg's national animal is the Big Smoldog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ralphburg is ranked 52,749th in the world and 1,481st in the South Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.47 Bank.
