The Corporate Queendom of Northern Rosary Isles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Charlotte with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.618 billion Rosarians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Garden. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rosarian economy, worth 343 trillion Fleurs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 212,046 Fleurs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,145,870 per year while the poor average 20,325, a ratio of 56.4 to 1.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, kindergartners love the free balloons that their schools give them, garbage bags floating down the river are churned up by man-made rapids, and citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Rosary Isles's national animal is the Branta canadensis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Northern Rosary Isles is ranked 1,928th in the world and 104th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 900.4 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
