The Democratic United States of Kompa Ru is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 40.023 billion Kompa Ruans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunar City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kompa Ruan economy, worth a remarkable 3,728 trillion Ru Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 93,168 Ru Dinars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 314,796 per year while the poor average 20,395, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, and Kompa Ru has designated Lunar City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kompa Ru's national animal is the German Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Kompa Ru is ranked 101,795th in the world and 7th in The Heartland for Smartest Citizens, with 33.03 quips per hour.
