The Free Advertising Space of Ruritania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Admiral Memo with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 29.818 billion Ruritanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 11.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruritanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,945 trillion sovereigns a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,232 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For 25 sovereigns tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, and burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 183,231st in the world and 3rd in Runners Region for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -17.32 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
