The Watchmen of Rorschach is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 44.202 billion Rorschachians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Bend. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rorschachian economy, worth a remarkable 3,131 trillion pounds of flesh a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 70,847 pounds of flesh, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and Rorschach has designated South Bend as its capital city. 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 310,879th in the world and 120th in Texas for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19.6 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
