The Glorious Totalist State of North Rosmana is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Georgy Felixovich Barya with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.735 billion North Rosmanans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Ampaka. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse North Rosmanan economy, worth 307 trillion Shackles 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. 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 an impressive 112,602 Shackles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

North Rosmana isn't what it used to be, Georgy Felixovich Barya panders to nontraditional families, North Rosmanans must literally pay their respects to hear from their political representatives, and turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Rosmana's national animal is the Persian Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Atheism.

North Rosmana is ranked 253,015th in the world and 1,424th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -101.89 on the Hayek Index.
