Population585 million



The Empire of Rohanland is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 585 million Rohanlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osprey. The average income tax rate is 31.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rohanlandian economy, worth 57.1 trillion Rohans a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 97,594 Rohans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, the World Empire Games have been won again by Rohanland as no other country cares enough to compete, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rohanland's national animal is the Rohanosaurus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rohanland is ranked 56,615th in the world and 2,223rd in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,715.92 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
