The Republic of Rutvegas is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, devout population of 185 million Rutvegasians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 53.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Rutvegasian economy, worth 5.54 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 29,935 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cars are banned, political detractors refer to Leader as 'that Bigtopian puppet', birth rates have hit an all-time low, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rutvegas's national animal is the Thomas, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
