The Grand Duchy of Rhodaesa is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Duke Lucien Romali with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.494 billion Rhodaesans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosalae. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rhodaesan economy, worth 149 trillion Fleudairs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,342 Fleudairs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBR Governor goes house hunting, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhodaesa's national animal is the Lotis Blue Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Rhodaesa is ranked 43,029th in the world and 500th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 95.41 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
