The Kingdom of Ronster is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-working, devout population of 235 million Ronsterians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 26.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ronsterian economy, worth 15.9 trillion Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 67,468 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, the nation solves other countries' human rights problems with a generous dose of violence, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ronster's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ronster is ranked 133,678th in the world and 6,088th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 10.59 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
