The Constitutional Monarchy of Rushkaville is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joseph Conrad with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 39.6 billion Rushkavilleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rushkaville City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rushkavillean economy, worth an astonishing 11,345 trillion Fun Bucks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 286,507 Fun Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rushkaville's national animal is the Turkey Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Rushkaville is ranked 290th in the world and 9th in Lazarus for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 24,327.31 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
