The Socialist Federal Republic of Rorlenland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Klara Lehmbruck with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.03 billion Rorlenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herzelheim. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Rorlenian economy, worth 996 trillion Rorlenian Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 165,335 Rorlenian Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, cat memes without alt text are now illegal, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rorlenland's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rorlenland is ranked 12,413th in the world and 57th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.05 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
