OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed population of 20.141 billion 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 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.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. 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 3,773rd in Lazarus and 121,439th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -13 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
