The Mike Roctafinserland

Population4.434 billion


CurrencyRoctanian Dollar

The Queendom of The Mike Roctafinserland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.434 billion Roctanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okusha. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mike Roctafinserlandian economy, worth 723 trillion Roctanian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 163,210 Roctanian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Applications to enter seminaries spike right before the obligatory fasts, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, the state subsidizes liposuction, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Mike Roctafinserland's national animal is the neko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Taraa.

The Mike Roctafinserland is ranked 15,905th in the world and 898th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 79.8 on the Human Development Index.
