The Iron Guard of Rowaklia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Boldusky Nikolay with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.267 billion Rowaklians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hagia-Napoca. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rowaklian economy, worth a remarkable 1,255 trillion RAJS a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,291 RAJS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", edutainment video games are taking Rowaklia's students to the next level, and airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rowaklia's national animal is the Rowaklian BEAR, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

Rowaklia is ranked 108,997th in the world and 190th in New Warsaw Pact for Safest, scoring 63.68 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
