The Dictatorship of Rose Buds is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 441 million Members of The Hall are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.9%.

The very strong Kawaii economy, worth 25.7 trillion gold shillings a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 58,292 gold shillings, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rose Buds's national animal is the carrier pigeon.

Rose Buds is ranked 66,080th in the world and 1st in The Land Of The Rising Sun for Most Inclusive, scoring 105.16 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
