Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Watchmen of Rorschach is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 27.404 billion Rorschachians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Rorschachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,203 trillion pounds of flesh a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 43,928 pounds of flesh, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, and toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rorschach's national animal is the buzzard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rorschach is ranked 106th in Texas and 90,313th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 13 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
