The Colony of Red-ruM is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 878 million Red-ruMians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Overlook. The average income tax rate is 61.5%.

The Red-ruMian economy, worth 68.0 trillion silvers 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. 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 77,488 silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red-ruM's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Red-ruM is ranked 33,634th in the world and 2nd in Bumba Damballa for Healthiest Citizens, with 5.66 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
