The Most Serene Republic of Ruststraya is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.97 billion Ruststrayans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The relatively small, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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. The average income tax rate is 29.2%.
The all-consuming Ruststrayan economy, worth 416 trillion Bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 140,276 Bucks, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.
East Lebatuck tests its moon rovers in the barren wasteland of rural Ruststraya, children spout "Mors in Victoria" involuntarily throughout the day, reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime is a 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.
