The Kingdom of Rongorongo is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zoho Gumu with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.793 billion Rongorongoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiholo uki Kinge. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Rongorongoan economy, worth 223 trillion Shékeles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,896 Shékeles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumor has it that Zoho Gumu has won three lotteries in a row, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rongorongo's national animal is the Killer Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Rongorongo is ranked 219,862nd in the world and 131st in South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.33 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
