The United Republic of Rustington is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme President Lucas Sanders with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.844 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, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catania City. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Rustingtonian economy, worth 955 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 197,220 Rexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves. 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 4,731st in the world and 225th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 110.01 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
