Great Robertia

The Imperial Commonwealth of Great Robertia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 711 million Robertians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Robertsburg. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Robertian economy, worth 90.3 trillion imperial guilders a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,021 imperial guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, there are no bananas today in Great Robertia, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Robertia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Robertia is ranked 14,485th in the world and 665th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 4,600.78 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
