The United Commonwealth of The Rossinite Empire is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Ross I with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.78 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, although Education, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Rossinite economy, worth a remarkable 1,499 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 259,483 United Commonwealth Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 751,491 per year while the poor average 71,002, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, Rossinites refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. 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 2,033rd in the world and 91st in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 18,850.89 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
