The Watchmen of Rorschach is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 33.881 billion Rorschachians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Rorschachian economy, worth a remarkable 2,028 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 59,862 pounds of flesh, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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.
