OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 20.901 billion Rousannasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rousannas City. The average income tax rate is 97%. 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.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rousannas's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the chiasmata.

Rousannas is ranked 630th in Lazarus and 16,843rd in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 253.75 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
