The Dominion of Neruch is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Lord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.214 billion Neruchians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neruchia. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Neruchian economy, worth 178 trillion credits 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 147,049 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neruch's national animal is the platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Neruch is ranked 166,174th in the world and 6,256th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 39.38 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
