The Free Advertising Space of Ruritania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Admiral Memo with an even hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 31.332 billion Ruritanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strelsau. The average income tax rate is 17.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruritanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,118 trillion sovereigns a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,613 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, and tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Ruritania's national animal is the ferret, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ruritania is ranked 10,015th in the world and 2nd in Runners Region for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 78.29 Workforce Participation Rate.
