The Federation of Greater Rostoria is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Michael Brandenburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.783 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kalkingrad. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Rostorian economy, worth 335 trillion Rostorian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,597 Rostorian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, Michael Brandenburg is emphatic that Greater Rostoria's HDI is much higher than it seems (Greater Rostoria has found 1 easter egg), citizens insist that there's no law against standing downwind when marijuana crops are burned off, and broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business. 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 Prerosha.

Greater Rostoria is ranked 24,519th in the world and 423rd in The East Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 5,536.83 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
