The Enviro-Techno Union of The Rhuarc Bastion is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Artificial Intelligence with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.086 billion Bastionians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dox Sergus. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhuarc Bastionian economy, worth 257 trillion Solas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,663 Solas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rhuarc Bastion's national animal is the Goshawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Collective Druidism.

The Rhuarc Bastion is ranked 5,698th in the world and 110th in Forest for Best Weather, with 289 Meters Of Sunlight.
