The Revolutionary Republic of Rostokia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ekrem Mustafa with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.167 billion Rostokians 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 prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emel Istana. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rostokian economy, worth 725 trillion Ronds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,464 Ronds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, and businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rostokia's national animal is the Springbok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular.

Rostokia is ranked 196,190th in the world and 71st in The United Ascendancy for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.77 Crimes Per Hour.
