The Pollish State of Ruritane is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Reine Isabelle de Buryaume with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.309 billion Ruritanaises are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lutetia. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruritanois economy, worth 960 trillion ouroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 290,145 ouroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and it is impossible to get any work done as auditors swarm every inch of government factories and mines. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ruritane's national animal is the fishy fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Judaism.

Ruritane is ranked 6,980th in the world and 4th in Deep Storage for Rudest Citizens, with 121.93 Insults Per Minute.
