The Jingoistic States of RockYouLikeAHurricane is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Blazingstar with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, devout population of 8.316 billion RockYouLikeAHurricaneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tsunami. The average income tax rate is 38.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong RockYouLikeAHurricanean economy, worth 677 trillion Serendibite Scorpions 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Basket Weaving, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 81,454 Serendibite Scorpions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, the word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the RockYouLikeAHurricanean Colonial Thesaurus, vacationing RockYouLikeAHurricaneans expect to be treated as royalty, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. RockYouLikeAHurricane's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Totemism.

RockYouLikeAHurricane is ranked 208,699th in the world and 133rd in Texas for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 26.01 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
