The Watchmen of Rorschach is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 35.328 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 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rorschachian economy, worth a remarkable 2,110 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 59,738 pounds of flesh, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 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.

Rorschach is ranked 13,939th in the world and 20th in Texas for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 7,366.49 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
