The Defunct Queendom of Rothaland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Iona I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 5.896 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, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marksburg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rothish economy, worth a remarkable 1,279 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 amazing 216,974 Rothamarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Concussed Mute Swanball players cannot remember their lineup position, children are raised bilingual from an early age, in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days, and the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Queen Iona I Pics" has made Queen Iona I's mom a celebrity. 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 206,064th in the world and 49th in Novus Lucidum for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -22.93 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
