The Most Serene Republic of Ruststraya is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.255 billion Ruststrayans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thunder Dome. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.6%.

The powerhouse Ruststrayan economy, worth 257 trillion Bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 114,148 Bucks, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Ruststraya's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ruststraya's national animal is the blue-ringed octopus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bobism.

Ruststraya is ranked 1,875th in the world and 56th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 34.33 Weapons Per Person.
