Regional Influence: Auxiliary


The Democratic Republic of Rushenberg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Rauschenberger with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.983 billion Rushenbergs enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rausch City. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Rushenbergian economy, worth a remarkable 1,048 trillion pounds 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 210,327 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, saying "don't do anything that John Rauschenberger wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rushenberg's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Rushenberg is ranked 3,238th in the world and 3rd in Thaecia for Smartest Citizens, with 153.76 quips per hour.
