The United Socialist States of Rowanok is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Steering Committee with a fair hand, and renowned for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.555 billion Rowanokians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riverton. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rowanokian economy, worth 179 trillion Social Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,512 Social Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, bins outnumber trees in city parks, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rowanok's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Egalitarian Secularism.

Rowanok is ranked 25,813th in the world and 161st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.09 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
