Roans

The Democratic Republic of Roans is a small, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy and absence of drug laws. The democratic, devout population of 29 million Roansians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 32.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The developing Roansian economy, worth 756 billion shonis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 26,099 shonis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is totally unknown. Roans's national animal is the pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Roans is ranked 113,527th in the world and 50th in Refugia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 20,126.43 Standard Monetary Units.
