The Ruthenian Empire of Imperial Xenon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Viktor Ihorovych Romanchuk with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.99 billion Ruthenians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyiv. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ruthene economy, worth a remarkable 2,094 trillion Hyrvinas a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 233,007 Hyrvinas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Xenon's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Imperial Xenon is ranked 43,270th in the world and 10th in Union of Liberal Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
