The Republic of Rocie is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Zagries Bardin with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 920 million Rocieans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laiela. The average income tax rate is 60.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rociean economy, worth 76.6 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,219 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Zagries Bardin's office is running a trade deficit of midnight oil, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rocie's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rocie is ranked 125,264th in the world and 2,141st in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 76.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
