The Democratic Republic of Rushenberg is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 597 million Rushenbergs 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rausch City. The average income tax rate is 61.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rushenbergian economy, worth 57.7 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,635 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rushenberg's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rushenberg is ranked 22,933rd in the world and 65th in Thaecia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,038.43 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
