The Armed Technocracy of Rockemsockem is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Corant with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.748 billion Rockaskeites 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vel'os citadel. The average income tax rate is 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sockeite economy, worth 783 trillion cruisers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 209,027 cruisers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rockemsockem's national animal is the Northern Bisloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is of The Glorious Manperor of Mankind.

Rockemsockem is ranked 58,806th in the world and 1,557th in the Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 974.63 tourists per hour.
