The Federation of Ruwan Islands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Deppie Waikiki with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.076 billion Ruwan Islandsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruwan City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ruwan Islandsian economy, worth 375 trillion Ruwan Shells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 180,707 Ruwan Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Deppie Waikiki performing the Full-Monty are selling out, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ruwan Islands's national animal is the Threadfin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Analogism.

Ruwan Islands is ranked 7,991st in the world and 8th in Lands End for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,062.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
