The Federal Democracy of Roterdamia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Nicholas Salei with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.699 billion Roterdamians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dornoria. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roterdamian economy, worth 154 trillion Damios a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,020 Damios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, glamping Roterdamians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, the children of Roterdamia are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roterdamia's national animal is the Limsor Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Roterdamia is ranked 31,762nd in the world and 1,036th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,067.7 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
