The Watchmen of Rorschach is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 32.282 billion Rorschachians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 84.7%.

The strong Rorschachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,903 trillion pounds of flesh a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 58,956 pounds of flesh, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, and toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rorschach's national animal is the buzzard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rorschach is ranked 137,022nd in the world and 116th in Texas for Fattest Citizens, with 8.97 Obesity Rate.
