OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 21.595 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 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.

Universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, nudity is frowned upon, Rousannas City is a police state during international summits, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 3,555th in Lazarus and 119,901st in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -26 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
