The April Showers of Ruinenlust is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its national health service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.277 billion Rūins hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dendropolis. The average income tax rate is 14.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming RūÓned economy, worth a remarkable 1,943 trillion Runes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 189,079 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ruinenlust's national animal is the Flying Squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ruinenlust is ranked 8,470th in the world and 67th in Forest for Most Secular, with 96.13 Atheism Rate.
