The Colony of Rumborland is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 543 million Rumborians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miskinville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Rumborish economy, worth 70.8 trillion Kepengs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 130,315 Kepengs, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. Crime is totally unknown. Rumborland's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rumborland is ranked 36,285th in the world and 43rd in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Average, scoring 44.61 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
