The Federation of Ruwan Islands is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Deppie Waikiki with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The compassionate population of 1.165 billion Ruwan Islandsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruwan City. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruwan Islandsian economy, worth 169 trillion Ruwan Shells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 145,210 Ruwan Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and kindergartners love the free balloons that their schools give them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ruwan Islands's national animal is the Threadfin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Analogism.

Ruwan Islands is ranked 143,377th in the world and 102nd in Lands End for Largest Populations, with 1.17 billion capita.
