The Inexorable Weathering of Ruinenlust is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.938 billion Skeptics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, 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 43.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruinenlustian economy, worth a remarkable 1,938 trillion Runes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,037 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, prison visits increase substantially during election years, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence. Crime, especially youth-related, is 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 12,578th in the world and 106th in Forest for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 23.73 Bank.
