The Old Growth Forests of Ruinenlust is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.03 billion Skeptics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dendropolis. The average income tax rate is 9.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ruinenlustian economy, worth a remarkable 1,666 trillion Runes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 184,599 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ruinenlust's national animal is the Flying Squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ruinenlust is ranked 4,838th in the world and 48th in Forest for Highest Poor Incomes, with 135,821.65 Standard Monetary Units.
