The Dominion of Neruch is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Lord with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.389 billion Neruchians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neruchia. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Neruchian economy, worth 875 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 162,446 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neruch's national animal is the platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Neruch is ranked 4,708th in the world and 149th in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,327.42 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
