The Armed Republic of Rousannas is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 38.316 billion Rousannasians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rousannas City. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rousannasian economy, worth an astonishing 12,730 trillion chiasmatas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 332,239 chiasmatas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, even secular Rousannasians are shouting "Blessed are the cheesemakers!", and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rousannas's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rousannas is ranked 1,038th in the world and 36th in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 229.1 quips per hour.
