The United Commonwealth of The Rossinite Empire is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Ross I with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, vat-grown people, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.425 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 Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Albion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Rossinite economy, worth a remarkable 1,412 trillion United Commonwealth Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which 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 260,335 United Commonwealth Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 749,632 per year while the poor average 71,811, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, customers who are not the epitome of politeness always find themselves at the back of the queue, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and Rossinites refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns. 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 3,371st in the world and 96th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 26,979.97 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
