The Defunct Queendom of Rothaland is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Iona I with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and lack of airports. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 6.082 billion Roths are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marksburg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rothish economy, worth a remarkable 1,318 trillion Rothamarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 216,856 Rothamarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Queen Iona I Pics" has made Queen Iona I's mom a celebrity, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Marksburg, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rothaland's national animal is the Mute Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Rothaland is ranked 52,271st in the world and 26th in Novus Lucidum for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,639.4 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
