Mustachioed libertarian Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) is the reluctant bureaucrat tasked with leading the Parks and Recreation Department in the fictional town of Pawnee, Ind. Gruff and spiteful of his job’s very existence, Ron can be intimidating and ill-tempered. Resistant to change (he still has all his money tied up in gold) and skeptical of authority, Ron delights in making sure his job doesn’t get done.
