The Commonwealth of Rhoferia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The cynical, devout population of 620 million Rhoferians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 29.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Rhoferian economy, worth 18.8 trillion dins 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, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. 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 30,385 dins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhoferia's national animal is the Furnarius rufus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rhoferia is ranked 77,197th in the world and 2,450th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 112.986733244 Days.
