The 🇺🇦Rewilding🇺🇦 of Ruinenlust is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Rex Silvae with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.657 billion Rūins hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, 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 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rūined economy, worth a remarkable 2,840 trillion Runes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 224,419 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Research into 'designer babies' is banned, morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, and it is common to see Maxémon Trainer listed on Rūined resumés. 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 38,337th in the world and 141st in Forest for Most Income Equality, scoring 66.33 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
