The Rogue Nation of Mocha is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 665 million Mochans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mochienna. The average income tax rate is 27.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Mochan economy, worth 53.7 trillion Mocha Teas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Gambling, Trout Farming, Retail, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 80,783 Mocha Teas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and murderers and thieves claim divine inspiration to avoid prosecution. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mocha's national animal is the Mocha Cake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mocha is ranked 248,484th in the world and 272nd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.59 bananas ingested per day.
