The Republic of Runegeist is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, state-planned economy, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, humorless population of 12.952 billion Runegeistians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Runegeistian economy, worth a remarkable 1,998 trillion denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 154,270 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, third world countries are rich in "I Love Rome" t-shirts, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Runegeist's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Runegeist is ranked 2,181st in the world and 6th in New Western Empire for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 71 Valid Endorsements.
