The Republic of Rubyna is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Joseph Geralt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 15.588 billion Rubynans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andalusia. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Rubynan economy, worth a remarkable 4,249 trillion Rubies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 272,586 Rubies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory, frustrated teenage boys are told that if they like it then they should have put a ring on it, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rubyna's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rubyna is ranked 338th in the world and 14th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 98.99 on the Human Development Index.
