The Commonwealth of Rocebard is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Camarade Ernestov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.036 billion Rocebardians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damacanthe. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rocebardian economy, worth 140 trillion CÓbones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,544 CÓbones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government agents scour baking periodicals for subversive recipes, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rocebard's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Rocebard is ranked 15,498th in the world and 280th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 72.4 quips per hour.
