Can Rails work without database?

I've gone through some tutorials and found that every example they made
defines a Database. I wander can Rails work without database.

Yes it can. It's very common for rails apps to use a database but I've
written apps that don't.

It's actually easier than that now - you just need to say you don't
want activerecord loaded (in environment.rb) and comment out
initializers (in config/environment.rb) that set settings on
activerecord.
