The Republic of Rocie is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 669 million Rocieans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laiela. The average income tax rate is 52.5%.

The powerhouse Rociean economy, worth 55.7 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,286 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates have hit a new low, 75% of the words in government-funded "Super Fun Maths Games" are probably inaccurate, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rocie's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rocie is ranked 233,538th in the world and 7,984th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -9.49 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
