The Nomadic Peoples of Runkara is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Gabriel Fox with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 19.515 billion Runkarans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camda. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Runkaran economy, worth 922 trillion aaches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 47,283 aaches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, a government program is underway to revitalize Runkara's beaches, police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, and troops are either deafened by gunfire or a hysterical voice screaming the Party manifesto. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Runkara's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Runkara is ranked 25,882nd in the world and 16th in Union of Free Nations for Highest Drug Use, scoring 112.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
