The Federal Republic of Rotenstein is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Friedrich von Rotenstein with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.422 billion Rotensteiners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rotadlerburg. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rotensteinian economy, worth 219 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,717 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Judges who serve for life or good behavior can expect to stay for a week, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and overweight people receive reparations checks from fast-food chains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rotenstein's national animal is the red eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rotenstein is ranked 13,902nd in the world and 271st in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 87.79 on the Human Development Index.
