The Empire of Ru- is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Yoshio with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 8.514 billion Ruvians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 59.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ruvian economy, worth a remarkable 1,859 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 218,458 Crowns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 739,369 per year while the poor average 47,700, a ratio of 15.5 to 1.

Truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, the entire entry for Ru- in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, and engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats. 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 The Shaillian Faith.

Ru- is ranked 20,182nd in the world and 5th in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.12 Years.
