The Democratic States of Rushkaland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Theodore Richardson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.939 billion Rushkans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rushaka. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rushkan economy, worth 562 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 142,734 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rushkaland's national animal is the hare, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rushkaland is ranked 220,160th in the world and 6,380th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -221.45 on the Hayek Index.
