The Republic of Ruzzles is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its restrictive gun laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, cynical population of 3.471 billion Ruzzlesians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.5%.

The very strong Ruzzlesian economy, worth 198 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 57,270 pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 297,007 per year while the poor average 5,983, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Ruzzles's national animal is the parrot.

Ruzzles is ranked 50,692nd in the world and 1st in Wallastan for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 49,539 Standard Monetary Units.
