The United Commonwealth of The Rossinite Empire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Ross I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.116 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 Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Albion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rossinite economy, worth a remarkable 1,335 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 261,038 United Commonwealth Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 830,277 per year while the poor average 62,481, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Members of majority races are forced out of their homes to make way for Bigtopians, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, and King Ross I's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars. 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 1,962nd in the world and 70th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 261.04 on the Hayek Index.
