The Scientific Pretensions of Rocain Founder is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dr Cain with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.192 billion Foundrians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Lisbon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Foundrian economy, worth 494 trillion rumus a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 154,976 rumus, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 571,762 per year while the poor average 29,641, a ratio of 19.3 to 1.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages, and 'I'm Coming Out' has shot to the top of the nation's music charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rocain Founder's national animal is the parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is a colorful religion.

Rocain Founder is ranked 28,666th in the world and 24th in Rocain Labs for Fattest Citizens, with 14.84 Obesity Rate.
