The Republic of Rublex is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bob with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.327 billion Rublexians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rublexapilos. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rublexian economy, worth 275 trillion Digicoins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 118,297 Digicoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and Bob lights cigars with a hundred-Digicoins bill. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rublex's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hinduism.

Rublex is ranked 221,048th in the world and 6,661st in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 4.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
