The Pollish State of Ruritane is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Reine Isabelle de Buryaume with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ban on automobiles, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.568 billion Ruritanaises are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lutetia. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruritanois economy, worth 912 trillion ouroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Retail, Soda Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 199,790 ouroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, royals are always ready with their diamond-encrusted toilet plungers in case a royal flush doesn't work, and brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Ruritane's national animal is the fishy fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Judaism.

Ruritane is ranked 135,314th in the world and 27th in Deep Storage for Most Armed, with 0.31 Weapons Per Person.
