The United States of Ramiru is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joe Sully with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.316 billion Ramirans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ramington DC. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient an Ramiran Citizen economy, worth 724 trillion Ramiran Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 167,868 Ramiran Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... an Ramiran Citizen satellites can detect it, girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes, and men of steel get no respect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ramiru's national animal is the Ramiran Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Ramiru is ranked 208,374th in the world and 7,775th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.19 Weapons Per Person.
