The Rijk of Rohst is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Stadhouder Gysbert Crom with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.439 billion Rohstmen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opijnen. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rohstian economy, worth a remarkable 1,104 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,854 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, cyclists spend more time unlocking their bicycles than they do cycling, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rohst's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rohst is ranked 125,576th in the world and 1st in Eordus for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 267.47 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
