The Old Growth Forests of Ruinenlust is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.03 billion Skeptics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dendropolis. The average income tax rate is 9.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ruinenlustian economy, worth a remarkable 1,668 trillion Runes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 184,734 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ruinenlust's national animal is the Flying Squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ruinenlust is ranked 74,446th in the world and 99th in Forest for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,581.09 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
