Lord Shree Rama ruled his kingdom for 11000 years?

How is it possible to rule a kingdom for so many years?

Or was it like his kingdom followed his dynasty for so many years?

Ravana lived more than Lord Shree Ram as per this link. How is this possible?

What I assume is Ram Rajya was there for 11000 years, he created such a robust living style that it was continued for 11000 years.

There are 2 types of yuga theories – traditional one and Sri Yukteswar’s theory. In traditional theory, the years in yugas are multiplied by 360. I consider Sri Rama’s rule of 10,000 years as inflated so if you divide it by 360, we get approx. 28 years or 30 years in case of 11,000 years. Now this looks more realistic considering the life span of humans is approx. 100 years as told by Sita in Ramayana. 

you don’t believe it is possible for humans to live this long, I empathize with you, so let us be really scientific for a moment.

Do you believe Rama existed ? Yes or No ?
If Yes, did you see him personally ? Yes or No ?
If No, then what is your basis/proof for the belief that he existed ?

We all know about Rama only through Valmiki muni’s Ramayan.
If you believe Rama existed just because it is said so in Ramayan (meaning you have faith in the book Ramayan), then you should also believe Rama ruled for 11,000 years just because it is said so in Ramayan.
Similarly, if you reject the 11000-year life based on ‘common sense’ (you don’t see anyone living for more than 100+ years nowadays), then you should also reject Rama’s existence based on common sense (you don’t see Rama nowadays).
If you neither accept nor reject the 11000 year-rule, then you should neither accept nor reject Rama’s existence. All you can scientifically say is “I do not know enough about either claim to confirm or deny it”.

Apply the same level of belief OR non-belief on an evidence. If you want to be scientific, you cannot accept one part of an evidence based simply on faith, and reject another part of an evidence based on ‘common sense’, which is subjective.
