The Republic of Rubistein is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Nicolas Delafose with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.254 billion Rubistenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pripalgesk. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rubisteinian economy, worth 460 trillion Rupies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,186 Rupies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, Rubistein successfully hosted the The North Pacific Olympics, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, and 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rubistein's national animal is the Howler Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rubistein is ranked 164,848th in the world and 8,645th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -17.23 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
