The Republic of Rundashia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Chancellor Hou with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 19.611 billion Rundashians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osaka. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Rundashian economy, worth a remarkable 3,542 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,616 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, formerly internationally exported goods are now given away for free, the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rundashia's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Rundashia is ranked 13,646th in the world and 678th in Osiris for Most Secular, with 85.38 Atheism Rate.
