The Nomadic Peoples of Ruvaakah is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The democratic population of 84 million Ruvaakaars enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 12.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Ruvaakke economy, worth 4.24 trillion Dovs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,521 Dovs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
