The Monarchy of Ruling Now is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Elizabeth Warren with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.285 billion Ruling Nowians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Vegas Nevada. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruling Nowian economy, worth 391 trillion US Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,217 US Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Aides are afraid to ask if Elizabeth Warren wants a cup of tea or coffee, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, a soldier's body is a temple, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ruling Now's national animal is the Mount Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ruling Worship.

Ruling Now is ranked 219,017th in the world and 364th in United Kingdom for Least Corrupt Governments, with 53.08 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
