The Most Serene Republic of Ruststraya is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.438 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 prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thunder Dome. The average income tax rate is 48.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ruststrayan economy, worth 744 trillion Bobs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 167,644 Bobs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, and Bob signs the laws but abides by none of them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 89,438th in the world and 4,372nd in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 27.66 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
