The Armed Republic of Rubidome is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tyr Rathson with an even hand, and notable for its feral children, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.352 billion Rubidomeans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Migardal. The average income tax rate is 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Rubidomean economy, worth 113 trillion silvers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 83,915 silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Norse Paganism has been named as Rubidome's national religion, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rubidome's national animal is the Basking Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Norse Paganism.

Rubidome is ranked 61,022nd in the world and 3rd in The Imperial Union for Largest Black Market, with 704 billion Standard Monetary Units.
