The Dutch Kingdom of Rutannia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Wilhelmina with an even hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 19.015 billion Dutch enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dutch economy, worth a remarkable 2,514 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,221 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, Formula One cars in Rutannia boast 56 miles per gallon, and blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rutannia's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dutch Reformed Church.

Rutannia is ranked 8,541st in the world and 24th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 13 valid endorsements.
