The Queen's State of Rockcliffe Park is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.424 billion Rockcliffe Parkians 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Rockcliffe Parkian economy, worth 38.0 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Cheese Exports, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 5,121 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, Rockcliffe Park has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, The Governor has just been declared ruler of Rockcliffe Park in an international press conference, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rockcliffe Park's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rockcliffe Park is ranked 130,761st in the world and 1st in Oklahoma City for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 325.12 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
