The Federal Republic of Rubrayev is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mikhail Ivanov with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 4.119 billion Rubraneses 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wisktel. The average income tax rate is 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rubranese economy, worth 461 trillion Kiraseks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,158 Kiraseks, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rubrayev's national animal is the Rubrayev Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Rubrayev is ranked 36,457th in the world and 15th in Novo Brasil for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 67.21 Effective Tax Rate.
