The Iron Guard of Rowaklia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Boldusky Nikolay with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.618 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 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 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rowaklian economy, worth a remarkable 1,297 trillion RAJS a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,233 RAJS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications, pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Rowaklian BEARS and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. 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 10,599th in the world and 49th in New Warsaw Pact for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 4 Valid Endorsements.
