The Republic of Ruccola is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Marco di Castello with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.875 billion Ruccolians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Defense and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arugula. The average income tax rate is 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ruccolian economy, worth a remarkable 2,353 trillion amores a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 87,584 amores, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, Ruccola has designated Arugula as its capital city, and President Marco di Castello has just been declared ruler of Ruccola in an international press conference. Crime is relatively low. Ruccola's national animal is the Royal Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ruccola is ranked 25,514th in the world and 6th in Maredoratica for Most Cultured, scoring 77 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
