The Socialist Republic of Rothnia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade Bulin with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.663 billion Rothnians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bulingrad. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Rothnian economy, worth 743 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 159,499 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One of the most popular models in Rothnia has a scarred face and one working eye, coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms, board shorts have replaced board rooms, and gift baskets often contain working nukes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rothnia's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Rothnia is ranked 5,112th in the world and 112th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Poor Incomes, with 145,480.26 Standard Monetary Units.
