The Small Town of Rumbeke is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arsène with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 13.637 billion Rumbekeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rumbeke City. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rumbekean economy, worth a remarkable 1,047 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,813 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rumbeke's national animal is the sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Katholiek.

Rumbeke is ranked 38,685th in the world and 40th in Vlaanderen for Most Developed, scoring 62.24 on the Human Development Index.
