The Democratic Republic of Rushenberg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by John Rauschenberger with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.12 billion Rushenbergs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rausch City. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Rushenbergian economy, worth 302 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 142,879 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, John Rauschenberger has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, and private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rushenberg's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.
