Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Republic of Rouene is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Nicolas Valois with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 5.223 billion Rouenic people 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Providence. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rouenic economy, worth a remarkable 1,217 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 233,021 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, the nation leads The North Pacific for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and communists in Rouene note that wealth should be equal but that some should have more of that equality than others. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rouene's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Rouene is ranked 7,388th in the world and 356th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 325.2 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
