The Republic of Rundashia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Chancellor Hou with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 20.752 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 3,750 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 180,710 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, and the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region. 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 179,821st in the world and 5,485th in Osiris for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -4.67 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
