The Dictatorship of Ropen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Predrag Bojević with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.968 billion Ropen 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caskarta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ropenian economy, worth 389 trillion Septemns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 197,764 Septemns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,108,075 per year while the poor average 17,513, a ratio of 63.3 to 1.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Ropen in search of Eagles, auditors are gutting every governmental department, and death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ropen's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Ropen is ranked 8,407th in the world and 23rd in Conch Kingdom for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 431.17 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
