The Federal Republic of TheRuthenians is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.15 billion Rutheniansians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Rutheniansian economy, worth 178 trillion RuthenianCredits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,463 RuthenianCredits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 496,050 per year while the poor average 37,039, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.
Weathermen are being arrested for attempting to read the future, the nation's countrysides are littered with landmines due to ongoing family disputes, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Rutheniansian beaches, and games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. TheRuthenians's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
