The United Socialist States of Roskuca is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Surpreme Chairmain with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.465 billion Roskucans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korusgrad. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Roskucan economy, worth 358 trillion Redstars 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,568 Redstars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glamping Roskucans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, and atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roskuca's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Material Dialectism.

Roskuca is ranked 15,766th in the world and 502nd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 79.59 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
