The Republic of Russet Haven is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.858 billion Russet Havenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Orchard. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Russet Havenian economy, worth 72.6 trillion Russins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 39,062 Russins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, treason is relative, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russet Haven's national animal is the Ghost Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Russet Haven is ranked 114,784th in the world and 182nd in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -60.27 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
