The Constitutional Kingdom of Robertsonstan is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by King Robert I with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.968 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taylorville. The average income tax rate is 4%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, the nation's WA representatives have received a very public sacking after Robertsonstan allowed its WA membership to lapse, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion. Crime is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Robertsonstan's national animal is the Ragdoll, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is None, and its currency is the Tay.
