The Republic of Rocitzen is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 362 million Rocitzenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 16.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rocitzenian economy, worth 38.9 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Gambling, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 107,423 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Leading ethologists are being investigated for illegal electoral interference, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, all the world's a stage for Rocitzenian political theatrics, and clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Rocitzen's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rocitzen is ranked 46,918th in the world and 25th in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 3,218.94 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
