The Fiefdom of Lady Rose is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lady Rose with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 23.865 billion Lady Roseans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Healthcare, 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. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. 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 75th in Asia and 111,077th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -41 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
