The Commonwealth of Rubian Empire is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Matthaios Angelos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 6.195 billion Rubians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruby. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rubian Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 1,717 trillion Angelos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 277,225 Angelos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rubian Empire's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rubian Empire is ranked 10,418th in the world and 222nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 9,360.88 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
