The Democratic States of Rushkaland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Theodore Richardson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.529 billion Rushkans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rushaka. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rushkan economy, worth 517 trillion credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,571 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rushkan companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rushkaland's national animal is the hare, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rushkaland is ranked 201,086th in the world and 5,808th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 5.15 Obesity Rate.
