The Fiefdom of Lady Rose is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lady Rose with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.629 billion Lady Roseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meriamne. The average income tax rate is 6.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lady Rosean economy, worth a remarkable 9,270 trillion Coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 253,079 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, and the endangered saltwater humpback Black Squirrel is only seen in captivity programs. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lady Rose's national animal is the Black Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Individualism.

Lady Rose is ranked 205,852nd in the world and 1st in Lady Rose for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -66.48 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
