The April Showers of Ruinenlust is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.223 billion Rūins 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dendropolis. The average income tax rate is 10.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming RūÓned economy, worth a remarkable 1,924 trillion Runes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 188,269 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader always arrives fashionably late and smelling of mushrooms, there is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ruinenlust's national animal is the Flying Squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ruinenlust is ranked 310th in the world and 11th in Forest for Best Weather, with 1,115 Meters Of Sunlight.
