The United Republic of Rustington is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Lucas Marshall with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.42 billion Rustingtonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catania City. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Rustingtonian economy, worth 433 trillion Rexes 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 178,959 Rexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, government agents are triangulating the position of the rainbow's end for the purposes of gold acquisition, refugees from other nations are flocking to Rustington's border, and people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rustington's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Unitarian Universalism.

Rustington is ranked 2,995th in the world and 134th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 63.69 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
