The Republic of Rupika is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Kamarov Billards with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 980 million Rupikans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of wheatenhaven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The very strong Rupikan economy, worth 62.5 trillion shkults a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 63,817 shkults, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.

Expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, Rupika has designated wheatenhaven as its capital city, and President Kamarov Billards has just been declared ruler of Rupika in an international press conference. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Rupika's national animal is the snow leopard.

Rupika is ranked 50,598th in the world and 45th in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 3,037.91 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
