The Queen's State of Rudlin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 22.401 billion Rudlinians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.1%.

The very strong Rudlinian economy, worth 960 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling. Average income is 42,897 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 291,649 per year while the poor average 2,304, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Rudlin has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, the Governor has just been declared ruler of Rudlin in an international press conference, none has been named as Rudlin's national religion, and most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Rudlin's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Rudlin is ranked 24,664th in the world and 3rd in East Timor for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
