The Commonwealth of Roedthaffen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by High Representatives with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 1.552 billion Tsonese 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 relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nantian. The average income tax rate is 21.1%.

The Roedthaffenian economy, worth 95.1 trillion Neumarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,278 Neumarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, birth rates have hit an all-time low, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, and an online tea-bagging epidemic is getting worse and (meta)worse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roedthaffen's national animal is the Resplendant Serpent, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Roedthaffen is ranked 151,113th in the world and 38th in New West Indies for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 106,997 Standard Monetary Units.
