The Constitutional Monarchy of Rushkaville is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Conrad with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 36.023 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, Environment, and Welfare. 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 a remarkable 8,527 trillion Fun Bucks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,726 Fun Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, much of Rushkaville's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. 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 3,395th in the world and 119th in Lazarus for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 11,492.65 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
