The Watchmen of Rorschach is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 25.316 billion Rorschachians 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 the Environment, Social Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 82%. 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.

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, and its currency is the pound of flesh.

Rorschach is ranked 12th in Texas and 2,483rd in the world for Best Weather, with 285 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
