The Empire of Great Robertia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 341 million Robertians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Robertsburg. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Robertian economy, worth 33.3 trillion imperial guilders a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,645 imperial guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation leads The North Pacific in per capita stalking, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations. 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 41,670th in the world and 2,193rd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,272.64 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
