The Republiek of Rookanse is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.29 billion Rooks enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Preston. The average income tax rate is 6.8%.

The strong Rookansean economy, worth 198 trillion Rand a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 60,353 Rand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

High school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Rookanse's national animal is the Rooikat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rookanse is ranked 35,777th in the world and 5th in Kali Yuga for Healthiest Citizens, with 6.08 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
