The Armed Republic of RockyTop is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 222 million RockyTopians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Spirituality, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The powerhouse RockyTopian economy, worth 22.4 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 101,069 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 407,016 per year while the poor average 16,782, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

Jennifer Government is banned, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, and powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. RockyTop's national animal is the Puppies, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

RockyTop is ranked 146,182nd in the world and 4,984th in Osiris for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -7.75 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
