The Jingoistic States of Rhothstan is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.161 billion Rhothstanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lugerhagen. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhothstanian economy, worth 95.3 trillion credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 82,077 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

School children declare that teachers "may confiscate our toys but they can never take our FREEDOM", inheritance tax has recently been abolished, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, and no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhothstan's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rhothstan is ranked 108,989th in the world and 1,903rd in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 386 billion Standard Monetary Units.
