The Republic of Ruterham is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 504 million Ruternese 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruterham City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.1%.

The very strong Rutern economy, worth 49.1 trillion Rutes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,416 Rutes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 302,654 per year while the poor average 24,125, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, and prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ruterham's national animal is the Pidgeon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ruterham is ranked 23,947th in the world and 316th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,169.08 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
