Rorschach

The Watchmen of Rorschach is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 41.98 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, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rorschachian economy, worth a remarkable 2,925 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 69,688 pounds of flesh, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 12,861st in the world and 20th in Texas for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 3 valid endorsements.
