The Socialist Kingdom of Rotar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by His Highness King Isidor I with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.916 billion Rotari are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isidorovsky. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Rotari economy, worth a remarkable 1,732 trillion Bronze Cestias 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 292,795 Bronze Cestias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign governments regularly accuse the Rotari military of war crimes, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs, and the new Really Big Telescope has been praised for presenting pictures of bright dots in unprecedented detail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rotar's national animal is the Lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Personality Cult of King Isidor I.

Rotar is ranked 20,166th in the world and 301st in The Communist Bloc for Most Secular, with 55.1 Atheism Rate.
