The United Great Green Queendoms of Rothaland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Her Majesty Queen Astrid of Killarney with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 3.78 billion Roths are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marksburg. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Rothish economy, worth 740 trillion Rothamarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 195,936 Rothamarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, and terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rothaland's national animal is the Mute Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Rothaland is ranked 25,710th in the world and 3rd in Novus Lucidum for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.29 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
