The Fiefdom of Lady Rose is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lady Rose with a fair hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.486 billion Lady Roseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meriamne. The average income tax rate is 13%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lady Rose's national animal is the rude goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Individualism, and its currency is the cough drop.

Lady Rose is ranked 33rd in Asia and 39,975th in the world for Best Weather, with 8 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
