The Republic of Rubiatrix is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 261 million Rubiatrixians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alimanacus. The average income tax rate is 34.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Rubiatrixian economy, worth 19.3 trillion Rubiaxes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 74,102 Rubiaxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts, and commuters and their desktops both bemoan their hard drives. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rubiatrix's national animal is the Feather Duster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rubiatrix is ranked 48,908th in the world and 75th in Capitalist Paradise for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.81 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
