The Sidekick of The Robin is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.823 billion Robinians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gotham. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Robinian economy, worth 987 trillion Caves a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,522 Caves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's image rights are the strictest in the world, tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, voting is compulsory, and confused drunks wake up to irate drill sergeants whipping them into shape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Robin's national animal is the bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

The Robin is ranked 35,427th in the world and 18th in The Hole for Most Influential, scoring 827 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
