The Prime Minister of Roavin is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jonathan Relean with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.393 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 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Roavinian economy, worth 561 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 87,822 Johtirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. 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 87,630th in the world and 3,250th in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 66 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
