Ruritania is the name of a fictional country in central Europe, used as a setting for several novels by Anthony Hope, which stands for a whole genre of imaginary-lands fiction, in both fantasy and mainstream literature.
Ted Johnstone used Ruritania as the title of his Diplomacy-by-mail fanzine in the 1960s. It was probably the second ever, after John Boardman's Graustark.
