|Leader||President Casmond Wellington|
The Southern Commonwealth of Rostokia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Casmond Wellington with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.609 billion Rostokians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zanderberg. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Rostokian economy, worth 262 trillion Ronds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,573 Ronds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Farting etiquette is taught in schools, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, apprentice builders get teased for wearing hard hats, and religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rostokia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
