OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 21.259 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 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 98%. 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.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the nation refuses to provide international aid, and citizens must pay to enjoy Rousannas's pristine beaches. 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 54th in Lazarus and 1,590th in the world for Largest Populations, with 21,259 Capita (millions).
