The Republic of Rublex is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Bob with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 5.248 billion Rublexians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rublexapilos. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rublexian economy, worth 762 trillion Digicoins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,324 Digicoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, books are so highly regarded in Rublex that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rublex's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hinduism.

Rublex is ranked 13,914th in the world and 303rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 9,281.13 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
