OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 20.707 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.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, soldiers are equipped with multi-million chiasmata battlesuits, and the government is flooded with compensation requests. 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 3,104th in Lazarus and 112,182nd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -161 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
