The Republic of Ralphburg is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ralph the terrier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.209 billion Ralphburgers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anor Londog. The average income tax rate is 15.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ralphburgian economy, worth 183 trillion Dogecoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 151,885 Dogecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, the entire entry for Ralphburg in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', eminent domain has been abolished, and soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ralphburg's national animal is the Big Smoldog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ralphburg is ranked 108,147th in the world and 3,672nd in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.87 Obesity Rate.
