The United Republic of Rustington is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Lucas Sanders with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.272 billion Rustingtonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catania City. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rustingtonian economy, worth 615 trillion Rexes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 188,119 Rexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rustington's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Unitarian Universalism.

Rustington is ranked 3,315th in the world and 186th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.51 on the Human Development Index.
