Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Watchmen of Rorschach is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 27.936 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 morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rorschachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,536 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 55,007 pounds of flesh, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 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 72nd in Texas and 69,130th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.36 Stalins.
