The Errant Knights of Rughzhenhaide is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Se Ren Zhenh with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.68 billion Rughzhenhaideans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reighnvhasta. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rughzhenhaidean economy, worth a remarkable 1,739 trillion Rugs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. 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 amazing 260,424 Rugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, Rughzhenhaide Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rughzhenhaide's national animal is the Chimera, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Turtlezogoth.

Rughzhenhaide is ranked 46,858th in the world and 24th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Populations, with 6.68 billion Capita.
