Rose Landia

The Kingdom of Rose Landia is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 193 million Rose Landians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Rose Landian economy, worth 4.87 trillion Spices a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 25,217 Spices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, and the government is giving peace a chance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rose Landia's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Rose Landia is ranked 56,155th in the world and 2,863rd in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 91.65 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
