OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 21.27 billion Rousannasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 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.

All tariffs have been abolished, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and military spending is on the increase. 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 19th in Lazarus and 702nd in the world for Best Weather, with 539 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
