The Unleashing of The Revenge of Rover is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Butch with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.956 billion Roverians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dogleash. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Revenge of Roverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,480 trillion Ducats a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,130 Ducats, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, you can tell when Roverians are being snarky by the fact their lips are moving, the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Revenge of Rover's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tailwagging.

The Revenge of Rover is ranked 241,205th in the world and 8th in Grand Central for Most Secular, with 2.39 Atheism Rate.
