The Constitutional Kingdom of Robertsonstan is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by King Robert I with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.174 billion Robertsonstanians 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports.
Graffiti graces every city's streets, citizens must pay to enjoy Robertsonstan's pristine beaches, teenagers haven't been seen outdoors since the nation reconnected to the Internet, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. 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.
