The Commonwealth of The New Ruthenian Union is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 772 million Ruthenians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ho Chi Minh City. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Ruthenian economy, worth 22.8 trillion Ruthenian Hrynvias 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 29,570 Ruthenian Hrynvias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", love is a precious butterfly to be crushed under diplomatic protocol, and Ho Chi Minh City's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Ruthenian Union's national animal is the Mediterranean Monk Seal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

The New Ruthenian Union is ranked 8,193rd in the world and 1st in The 1st Entente for Most Authoritarian, with 5,006.48 milliStalins.
