The Principality of Ruvelka is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Captain-General Elsa Szekeres with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.711 billion Ruvelkans 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Debrecen. The average income tax rate is 78.3%.

The strong Ruvelkan economy, worth 814 trillion Laris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 69,583 Laris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, troops are either deafened by gunfire or a hysterical voice screaming the Party manifesto, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ruvelka's national animal is the Ruvelkan Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ruvelka is ranked 55,913th in the world and 20th in Tyran for Most Developed, scoring 56.42 on the Human Development Index.
