The Federation of Greater Rostoria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Michael Brandenburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.764 billion Rostorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kalkingrad. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Rostorian economy, worth 208 trillion Rostorian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,020 Rostorian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government makes bereaved siblings into bereaved orphans, retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, Michael Brandenburg is emphatic that Greater Rostoria's HDI is much higher than it seems (Greater Rostoria has found 1 easter egg), and citizens insist that there's no law against standing downwind when marijuana crops are burned off. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Rostoria's national animal is the Rostorian eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Prerosha.

Greater Rostoria is ranked 83,591st in the world and 2,036th in The East Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 181,352 Standard Monetary Units.
