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 remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 26.758 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 8.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rousannasian economy, worth a remarkable 6,804 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 254,285 chiasmatas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Notable individuals are granted land and titles, only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. 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 176,745th in the world and 5,678th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 0.36 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
