The Jocular Julian Jubilee of Ruinenlust is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rex Silvae with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.594 billion Lustres hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dendropolis. The average income tax rate is 35.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruinenlustian economy, worth a remarkable 1,661 trillion Runes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 193,317 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, Flying Squirrel is one of the most popular forenames in Ruinenlust, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ruinenlust's national animal is the Flying Squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ruinenlust is ranked 204,417th in the world and 439th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -31.75 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
