The Holy Empire of Rhossenia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Raisa Miremeslo with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.787 billion Rhossians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tavorsk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.3%.

The strong Rhossian economy, worth 110 trillion kopecks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 61,859 kopecks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 205,125 per year while the poor average 13,926, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Babysitters are a thing of the past, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, soldiers have a preference for fire-and-forget payloads, and Empress Raisa Miremeslo is the self-declared God of all Rhossenia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhossenia's national animal is the bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Imperial Orthodox Church.

Rhossenia is ranked 284,016th in the world and 3rd in Mareyland My Mareyland for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -142.63 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
