The United Thrones of Rumona is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by HIM Alise I with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.428 billion Scanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helgabo. The average income tax rate is 72.7%.

The powerhouse Scanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,029 trillion Nordmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Average income is 98,696 Nordmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Scanian mussels the biggest in The Independent Nations, it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, and father-son fishing trips have been banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rumona's national animal is the Scanian Viking's Moth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Rumona is ranked 165,489th in the world and 19th in The Independent Nations for Fattest Citizens, with 8.53 Obesity Rate.
