The United Commonwealth of The Rossinite Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Ross I with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.102 billion Rossinites are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Albion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Rossinite economy, worth a remarkable 1,574 trillion United Commonwealth Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 258,021 United Commonwealth Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 740,842 per year while the poor average 71,458, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, and shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices. Crime is totally unknown. The Rossinite Empire's national animal is the Kingfisher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Church of the Rossinites.

The Rossinite Empire is ranked 26,239th in the world and 1,342nd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
