The Grand Empire of Merciless Rossett is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Imperator Decimus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.897 billion Rossettisian are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crescent Point. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rossettisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,105 trillion Luna Signums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 187,482 Luna Signums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

When people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, the nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merciless Rossett's national animal is the Golden Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Order of the Crescent Moon.

Merciless Rossett is ranked 184,336th in the world and 22nd in Selene for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 31.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
