The Honorite Confederation of Greater Rostoria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King William Rosenburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.396 billion Rostorians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kalkingrad. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Rostorian economy, worth 509 trillion Rostorian Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,986 Rostorian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough, the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, and commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Rostoria's national animal is the Rostorian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Preroshan Orthodoxy.

Greater Rostoria is ranked 285,700th in the world and 4th in Trollistan for Most Inclusive, scoring 23.74 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
