The Imperial Commonwealth of Great Robertia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Robert III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 871 million Robertians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Robertsburg. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Robertian economy, worth 109 trillion imperial guilders a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 125,949 imperial guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Robertians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, nobody is forced to join the armed forces, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", and more than one company makes the board game Monopoly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Robertia's national animal is the black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Robertia is ranked 167,625th in the world and 1,019th in Europe for Most Devout, with 2.47 Prayers Per Hour.
