The Social Federal Republic of Rulsolia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Secretary John Peterson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.614 billion Rulsoians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rulbona. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Rulsoian economy, worth 880 trillion Rulas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,900 Rulas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rulsolia's national animal is the Yellow-tailed Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sunhaism.

Rulsolia is ranked 307,460th in the world and 58th in Arcesia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.45 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
