The Union of Rosofoku is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Master Dirron with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.408 billion Rosofokuans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivolga. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rosofokuan economy, worth 676 trillion Gercs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 198,532 Gercs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

There's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, weather forecasts are accurate but nobody has the bandwidth to view them, and tens of thousands of Rosofokuans rock the night away at the annual SuperLob. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rosofoku's national animal is the elephant, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Sekurizm.

Rosofoku is ranked 32,224th in the world and 1,913th in Balder for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 4,001.36 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
