The Grand Dutchy of Rokandia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand duke Rokas with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.032 billion Rokandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great Rokis. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rokandian economy, worth 147 trillion Roks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,728 Roks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, and the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rokandia's national animal is the White Stork, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rokandia is ranked 190,513th in the world and 409th in The Free Nations Region for Most Avoided, scoring 0.63 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
