The Imperial State of Great Robertia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Robert Peter I with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.525 billion Robertians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Robertsburg. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Robertian economy, worth 206 trillion Imperial guilders a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,192 Imperial guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The children of Great Robertia are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, lending money has become a major liability, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. 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, and its national religion is the Imperial cult.

Great Robertia is ranked 198,252nd in the world and 1,004th in Europe for Most Avoided, scoring 0.47 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
