The Democratic States of Roussea is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 148 million Rousseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Roussean economy, worth 8.23 trillion Conches a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,603 Conches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Leader's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Roussea City generates millions of views, Gibbon is one of the most popular forenames in Roussea, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roussea's national animal is the Gibbon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
