The Dominion of Neruch is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Lord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.259 billion Neruchians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neruchia. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Neruchian economy, worth 191 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 slick, highly efficient, 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 152,074 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children spout "We will get there" involuntarily throughout the day, veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 2,834th in the world and 80th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 98.75 Atheism Rate.
