The Democratic Republic of Republic of Rovine is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O'Harend Jackson Kollenson with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 806 million Rovineans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mother's City. The average income tax rate is 46.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rovinean economy, worth 73.0 trillion Rovleens a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 90,560 Rovleens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Shell-shocked refugees are made to provide Immigration with lively renditions of 'Dancing Queen', there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and O'Harend Jackson Kollenson has just been declared ruler of Republic of Rovine in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of Rovine's national animal is the German Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Republic of Rovine is ranked 107,880th in the world and 5,038th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 36.09 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
