|Leader||King Franz V|
The Koninkrijk of Rohst is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Franz V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.272 billion Rohstians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ultrecht. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Rohstian economy, worth 825 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,614 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rohst's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
