The Citizens Union of The Ruby Ranch Republic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Valek I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.663 billion Ruby Ranchians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ranch. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ruby Ranch Republician economy, worth 970 trillion jurgios a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 208,148 jurgios, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and nations that kill a Ruby Ranchian can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ruby Ranch Republic's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cthulhu.

The Ruby Ranch Republic is ranked 72,178th in the world and 39th in Azure Watester Federation for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,745.38 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
