The Commonwealth of Rothella is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Alcandar Andio with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.478 billion Rothellans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roana. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rothellan economy, worth 766 trillion Ruros a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,840 Ruros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, Rothellans believe manners maketh the leader, if you die during a restaurant meal the government will pick up the bill, and children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rothella's national animal is the Peregrine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rothella is ranked 207,992nd in the world and 2nd in Confederation of the Mediterranean for Most Primitive, scoring -204.11 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
