The Emeseses Colony of Rumborland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Premier with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.774 billion Rumborians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miskinville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rumborish economy, worth 575 trillion Kepengs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 207,518 Kepengs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 639,768 per year while the poor average 51,965, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Rumborland's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, a sophisticated government-sponsored breeding program creates normal people, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime is totally unknown. Rumborland's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is all religions.

Rumborland is ranked 63,297th in the world and 130th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,065.71 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
