The Kingdom of Rovere is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14 million Rovereans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The medium-sized, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.1%.
The very strong Roverean economy, worth 776 billion Roverean lire a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 55,438 Roverean lire, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 169,352 per year while the poor average 14,066, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.
It is illegal to make racist remarks in public and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Rovere's national animal is the woodpecker.
