The Jingoistic States of Rhothstan is a massive, safe nation, notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.466 billion Rhothstanians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lugerhagen. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhothstanian economy, worth 119 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 81,662 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and endangered species are effective hostages against the Rhothstanian military. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhothstan's national animal is the leopard.

Rhothstan is ranked 16,486th in the world and 500th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 86.08 on the Human Development Index.
