Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 27.273 billion Rousannasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rousannas City. The average income tax rate is 15.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rousannasian economy, worth a remarkable 7,255 trillion chiasmatas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 266,017 chiasmatas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All tariffs have been abolished, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, and the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Rousannas's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rousannas is ranked 101,179th in the world and 3,155th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 13.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
