OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 19.498 billion, 17.709 billion of whom are zombies, Rousannasians 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 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 99%. 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.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, and the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists. 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 3,676th in Lazarus and 115,039th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -35 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Rousannas is currently considering its options.
