The People's Republic of Rubumba is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Avatar with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.69 billion Rubumbans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertalia. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rubumban economy, worth 939 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 254,637 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase, and party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance". Crime is totally unknown. Rubumba's national animal is the Cobra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rubumba is ranked 8,580th in the world and 94th in The Communist Bloc for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.13 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
