The Citizens Union of The Ruby Ranch Republic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Valek I with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, lack of airports, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.166 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, moralistic, 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ruby Ranch Republician economy, worth 846 trillion Floricoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 203,096 Floricoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 707,663 per year while the poor average 42,438, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, many Ruby Ranchians twitch nervously at the sight of nuns, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ruby Ranch Republic's national animal is the duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cthulhu.

The Ruby Ranch Republic is ranked 8,549th in the world and 11th in Azure Watester Federation for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 29,036.8 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
