The Quadrennial Celebration of Ruinenlust is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Rex Silvae with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.714 billion Lustres hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dendropolis. The average income tax rate is 41.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruinenlustian economy, worth a remarkable 1,687 trillion Runes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 193,659 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government takes agricultural advice from a wasp-themed superhero, there is a dearth of space for new houses, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and Ruinenlustian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ruinenlust's national animal is the Flying Squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ruinenlust is ranked 165,031st in the world and 370th in Forest for Most Average, scoring 26.79 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
