The Imperial Federation of The Ruivan Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Lanti with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.161 billion Ruivans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sigma. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruivan economy, worth a remarkable 4,841 trillion Ruivs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,258 Ruivs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ruivan Empire's national animal is the Ruivan Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Ruivan Empire is ranked 274,538th in the world and 8,845th in Osiris for Most Devout, with 2.73 prayers per hour.
