The Fiefdom of Lady Rose is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lady Rose with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 24.182 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal individuals devotes most of its attentions to 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.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 105th in Asia and 120,905th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -218 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
