OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed population of 20.74 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.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Rousannas after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the education system is famed for its taxing exams, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. 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 580th in Lazarus and 22,291st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.097 Stalins.
