The Barony of Rokaku is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Imperator San with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.493 billion Rokakuans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pionku. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rokakuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,059 trillion Mohrs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,163 Mohrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the government builds houses for foreign newcomers, and Rokakuan tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rokaku's national animal is the Zazzora, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nationstateism.

Rokaku is ranked 105,494th in the world and 4,082nd in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring zero on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
