Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Advertising Space of Ruritania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Admiral Memo with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 28.477 billion Ruritanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small 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 8.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruritanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,770 trillion sovereigns a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,178 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ruritanian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, hymns sung by popular choirs top the billboard charts, penal labor is a de facto death sentence, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 902nd in the world and 1st in Sev Space for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 51,065.28 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
