The Queendom of Rhursbourg is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Adelaide II with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 27.659 billion Rhursbourgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhursbourg. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Rhursbourgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,305 trillion Rhursbourg Guilders a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,193 Rhursbourg Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and increasing numbers of children in Rhursbourg have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhursbourg's national animal is the Kestrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Rhursbourgian Union of churches.

Rhursbourg is ranked 134,359th in the world and 4,789th in Lazarus for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -5.48 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
