The Holy Empire of Roberdian is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Arcana Astavia with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, devout population of 5.939 billion RBS have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kolkata. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roberdianian economy, worth 749 trillion Kafkas a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,264 Kafkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and the only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roberdian's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hellenism.

Roberdian is ranked 12,810th in the world and 52nd in The Free Nations Region for Most Developed, scoring 88.57 on the Human Development Index.
