The Horseman of the Apocalypse of Roavin is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Jonathan Relean with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.93 billion Roavinians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Namartis. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Roavinian economy, worth 969 trillion Johtirs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,685 Johtirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, and the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roavin's national animal is the Left-Handed Chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Roavin is ranked 9,337th in the world and 307th in the South Pacific for Best Weather, with 225 Meters Of Sunlight.
