The Free Land of Rudisvakia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rudá with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.038 billion Rudisvakians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rudisvakian economy, worth 185 trillion Rudos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 90,957 Rudos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime is totally unknown. Rudisvakia's national animal is the Ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rudisvakia is ranked 28,381st in the world and 97th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
