The United Empire of Ruriq is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Iskandar I dari Ruriq with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.154 billion Ruriqians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruriq City. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruriqish economy, worth 749 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 180,348 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, the police double as repo men, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ruriq's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Freedom of Religion.

Ruriq is ranked 15,002nd in the world and 8th in Union of Justice for Most Developed, scoring 80.84 on the Human Development Index.
