The Commonwealth of Rocebard is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Camarade Ernestov with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 840 million Rocebardians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damacanthe. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rocebardian economy, worth 101 trillion CÓbones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 121,413 CÓbones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, patriots insist that size does matter, and people make a career out of medical voyeurism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rocebard's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rocebard is ranked 14,245th in the world and 224th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,960.73 on the Edu-tellignceģ Test Score.
