The Iron Guard of Rowaklia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Boldusky Nikolay with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.309 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, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hagia-Napoca. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rowaklian economy, worth a remarkable 1,160 trillion RAJS a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 124,692 RAJS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, and the government is lending a hand to private industry. 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 57,741st in the world and 103rd in New Warsaw Pact for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,781.13 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
