The Free Land of Runeda is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, soft-spoken computers, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.61 billion Runedee are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yapéa. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Runedeen economy, worth 279 trillion Gehties a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 107,130 Gehties, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Runeda's national animal is the Pirí, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Runeda is ranked 208,967th in the world and 9,445th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -141.34 on the Hayek Index.
