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 otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.502 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 aren't funded at all. 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 1,694 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 260,669 United Commonwealth Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 770,492 per year while the poor average 69,310, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

Diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and King Ross I has incinerated the international climate treaty in a public coal burning ceremony. 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 3,341st in the world and 116th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 8,314.15 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
