The Eye of Roavin is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jonathan Relean with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.026 billion Roavinians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Namartis. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Roavinian economy, worth 528 trillion Johtirs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,777 Johtirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roavin's national animal is the Left-Handed Chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Roavin is ranked 154,343rd in the world and 6,487th in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 46.21 Workforce Participation Rate.
