The Federal Stratocracy of Rogue River is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Henry Grant with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.469 billion Riverians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illatum Defenderent. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Riverian economy, worth 275 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 187,567 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, 'Let's Get It On' has jumped to #1 on the billboard charts, most barbers are also surgeons, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rogue River's national animal is the military equipped laser shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Militarism.

Rogue River is ranked 1,591st in the world and 1st in Calitainia for Rudest Citizens, with 267.38 insults per minute.
