The United Republic of Rustington is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Lucas Sanders with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.604 billion Rustingtonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catania City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Rustingtonian economy, worth 474 trillion Rexes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 182,178 Rexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends millions of Rexes every year prosecuting spammers, Rustingtonians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rustington's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Unitarian Universalism.

Rustington is ranked 22,229th in the world and 989th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 76.21 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
