The Empire of Ru- is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Yoshio with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 12.689 billion Ruvians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ru. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ruvian economy, worth a remarkable 2,890 trillion Rens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 227,779 Rens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 792,292 per year while the poor average 47,721, a ratio of 16.6 to 1.

Business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Ruvian emissions at all, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts, and class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference. Crime is totally unknown. Ru-'s national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kaelity.

Ru- is ranked 3,347th in the world and 2nd in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.41 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
