The ☀️Summer☀️Solstice☀️ of Ruinenlust is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its national health service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.657 billion Rūins 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 Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dendropolis. The average income tax rate is 29.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rūined economy, worth a remarkable 2,069 trillion Runes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 194,224 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ruinenlust's national animal is the Flying Squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ruinenlust is ranked 226,306th in the world and 461st in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -35.65 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
