The Free Land of Rocky Beach is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.277 billion Rocky Beachians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 13.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Rocky Beachian economy, worth 267 trillion Kirschkuchens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,721 Kirschkuchens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, in government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, the government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Rocky Beach's national animal is the Superpapagei, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rocky Beach is ranked 10,373rd in the world and 1st in Deutschland for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 8,446.38 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
