The Federation of New Rocland is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 185 million Roclandians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.5%.

The powerhouse Roclandian economy, worth 16.5 trillion Canadian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,078 Canadian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, all tariffs have been abolished, the government is flooded with compensation requests, and the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Rocland's national animal is the Domestic Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Rocland is ranked 37,426th in the world and 1,830th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 71.04 on the Human Development Index.
