The Republic of Runegeist is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 16.443 billion Runegeistians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Runegeistian economy, worth a remarkable 2,877 trillion denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 174,973 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Runegeist's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Runegeist is ranked 239,126th in the world and 193rd in New Western Empire for Fattest Citizens, with 0.99 Obesity Rate.
