The Horseman of the Apocalypse of Roavin is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Jonathan Relean with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.305 billion Roavinians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Namartis. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Roavinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,016 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 89,925 Johtirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, populations of two-headed Left-Handed Chickens have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. 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 19,348th in the world and 615th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,965.17 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
