The Most Serene Republic of Rumil is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Rumil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.205 billion woodelves are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The River Nimrodel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.2%.

The very strong elven economy, worth 652 trillion niphredils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 45,923 niphredils, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 136,545 per year while the poor average 12,109, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

The upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, military service is compulsory, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and the nation refuses to provide international aid. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Rumil's national animal is the woodpecker, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rumil is ranked 115,919th in the world and 11th in Lothlorien for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 24.16 Effective Tax Rate.
