The Democratic Republic of Rushenberg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Rauschenberger with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 2.079 billion Rushenbergs 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rausch City. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rushenbergian economy, worth 293 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 141,302 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, and rumor has it that John Rauschenberger has won three lotteries in a row. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rushenberg's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Rushenberg is ranked 242,112th in the world and 355th in Thaecia for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
