The Grand Kingdom of Rusozak is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Ardrus II with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.973 billion Rusozaks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pobedagrad. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Rusozakian economy, worth a remarkable 1,381 trillion Rusozak Units a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 72,794 Rusozak Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, Pobedagrad spends billions upgrading public transport, and politicians' financial records are locked up tighter than the nation's Rusozak Unit reserves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rusozak's national animal is the Rusozak Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Rusozak Orthodoxy.

Rusozak is ranked 179,416th in the world and 197th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 87,432 Standard Monetary Units.
