The Commonwealth of Rubian Empire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Matthaios Angelos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 12.268 billion Rubians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruby. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rubian Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 4,807 trillion Angelos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 391,880 Angelos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rubian Empire's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secular.

Rubian Empire is ranked 3,122nd in the world and 90th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 52,090.06 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
