The First Republic of Greater Rubisland is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 557 million Rubislanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murmansk. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rubislander economy, worth 50.3 trillion Rubis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 90,234 Rubis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, an endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Rubisland's national animal is the Arctic Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greater Rubisland is ranked 221,281st in the world and 634th in Europeia for Most Avoided, scoring 1.48 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
