LeaderThe Democratic Front


The Democratic Republic of Rouvenor is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Democratic Front with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.604 billion Rouvenorians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caille. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Rouvenorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,538 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 160,217 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rouvenor's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rouvenor is ranked 8,711th in the world and 145th in The Communist Bloc for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 428.19 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
