OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 21.451 billion 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 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 government is outsourcing itself, all artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. 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 3,509th in Lazarus and 119,938th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -12 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
