The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 28.345 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rousannas City. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rousannasian economy, worth a remarkable 7,871 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 277,707 chiasmatas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. 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 59,579th in the world and 2,222nd in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 0.36 Stalins.
