Roon and the Commander

Population677 million


CurrencyAkashi gems

The Empire of Roon and the Commander is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 677 million Roon and the Commanderians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roshycom. The average income tax rate is 40.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roon and the Commanderian economy, worth 80.7 trillion Akashi gems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 119,178 Akashi gems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Roshycom, trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same, the end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags, and all you have to do is pray to get into Roon and the Commander. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roon and the Commander's national animal is the Shrimpy, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Roon and the Commander is ranked 159,732nd in the world and 8,113th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.89 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
