OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 21.84 billion Rousannasians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rousannas City. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rousannasian economy, worth a remarkable 4,654 trillion chiasmatas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 213,114 chiasmatas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All tariffs have been abolished, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Rousannas's national animal is the beagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rousannas is ranked 2,807th in Lazarus and 95,070th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -31.849 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
