The Watchmen of Rorschach is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate population of 24.405 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, the Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 78%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, all forms of advertising are banned, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. 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, and its currency is the pound of flesh.

Rorschach is ranked 161st in Texas and 116,160th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
