The Empire of Rudaslavia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Imperator Vladislav VII with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.404 billion Rudaslavs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skalaburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Rudaslavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,964 trillion ladons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 127,525 ladons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,065,101 per year while the poor average 2,981, a ratio of 357 to 1.

The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, and parents who fail mandatory parenting classes risk having their children taken away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Rudaslavia's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Rudaslavia is ranked 24,002nd in the world and 1,389th in Lazarus for Highest Food Quality, scoring 87.47 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
