The Armed Republic of Runuburg is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 698 million Runuburgians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Runuburg City. The average income tax rate is 18.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Runuburgian economy, worth 50.1 trillion Marks 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 major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is 71,802 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, new urban roads are threatening city parks, increasing numbers of children in Runuburg have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, and exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Runuburg's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Runuburg is ranked 147,474th in the world and 9th in New Saxony for Highest Economic Output, with 50.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
