The Prime Minister AGAIN wtf of Roavin is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jonathan Relean with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.712 billion Roavinians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, 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 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Roavinian economy, worth 767 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 88,118 Johtirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast. 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 50,524th in the world and 1,242nd in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
