Population8.455 billion



The Free Land of Runeda is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.455 billion Runedee enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yapéa. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Runedeen economy, worth 922 trillion Gehties a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 109,048 Gehties, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Runeda's national animal is the Pirí, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Runeda is ranked 309,315th in the world and 9,392nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -10 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
