The Empire of Great Robertia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Robert Peter I with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.341 billion Robertians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Robertsburg. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Robertian economy, worth 171 trillion Imperial guilders a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 128,045 Imperial guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, anyone who so much as looks at Royalty without the proper amount of deference is jailed, and a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Robertian as 'your finger, you fool'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Robertia's national animal is the black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Imperial cult.

Great Robertia is ranked 133,585th in the world and 6,075th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.46 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
