The Dominion of Neruch is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Lord with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.947 billion Neruchians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neruchia. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Neruchian economy, worth 308 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 158,685 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, all footpaths have tollbooths, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neruch's national animal is the platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Neruch is ranked 35,596th in the world and 697th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 334.89088289192 Days.
