The Empire of Great Robertia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 320 million Robertians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Robertsburg. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Robertian economy, worth 29.8 trillion imperial guilders a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,008 imperial guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, and every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries. 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 black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Robertia is ranked 24,017th in the world and 1,076th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,688.34 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
