The Republic of Ralphburg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ralph the terrier with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.453 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anor Londog. The average income tax rate is 9.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ralphburgian economy, worth 234 trillion Dogecoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 161,349 Dogecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Airport security is provided by private companies, organ donation is compulsory, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and the justice of Ralphburg is considered superior to that of other nations. 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 38,226th in the world and 1,552nd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 103.78 on the Hayek Index.
