The Fiefdom of Lady Rose is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lady Rose with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 44.374 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meriamne. The average income tax rate is 2.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lady Rosean economy, worth an astonishing 12,497 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 281,645 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. 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 301,865th in the world and 1st in Lady Rose for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -44.34 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
