The United States of Ramiru is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Joe Sully with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.51 billion Ramirans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ramington DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.3%.

The frighteningly efficient an Ramiran Citizen economy, worth 753 trillion Ramiran Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 167,120 Ramiran Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Loan operators are losing interest due to lost interest, commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, loading sixteen tons of laundry gets you another year older and deeper in debt, and the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ramiru's national animal is the Ramiran Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Ramiru is ranked 9,538th in the world and 496th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 33.82 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
