The Empire of Rusnaiqua is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Karzov with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 866 million Rusnaiquans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nåvypåtokk. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rusnaiquan economy, worth 120 trillion crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,576 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, and national chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rusnaiqua's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rusnaiqua is ranked 70,907th in the world and 68th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 341.77 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
