The Mystery of Rumors is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Joker with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.38 billion Rumorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of Truth. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Rumorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,603 trillion Claws a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 251,310 Claws, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The freedom to be free is always just out of reach, voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime is totally unknown. Rumors's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rumors is ranked 201,375th in the world and 323rd in Thaecia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.39 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
