The Empire of Ru- is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Yoshio with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 10.273 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 58.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ruvian economy, worth a remarkable 2,285 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 222,506 Crowns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 768,624 per year while the poor average 47,108, a ratio of 16.3 to 1.

Attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts, and the government has enacted freedom of information. 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 241,382nd in the world and 9th in The Strategic and Economic Alliance for Most Secular, with 2.14 Atheism Rate.
