Los Rodeos

Population4.171 billion

LeaderKrulushwa Somperompo


The Republic of Los Rodeos is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Krulushwa Somperompo with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 4.171 billion Los Rodeosians 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Somperompo. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Los Rodeosian economy, worth 523 trillion Rodeos a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 125,450 Rodeos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, when conspiracy theorists talk about "government moles" they're referring to mysteriously mobile skin lesions, brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, and art criticism in Los Rodeos is scathingly destructive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Los Rodeos's national animal is the Moscow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Donkeyism.

Los Rodeos is ranked 5,744th in the world and 79th in the South Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 8,951.04 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
