The Corporate Queendom of Northern Rosary Isles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Charlotte with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.871 billion Rosarians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Garden. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rosarian economy, worth 444 trillion Fleurs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 237,836 Fleurs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,310,648 per year while the poor average 21,850, a ratio of 60.0 to 1.

Children must make a homemade spinach and ricotta rotolo by high school or be held back, unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne, people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Rosary Isles's national animal is the Branta canadensis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Northern Rosary Isles is ranked 128,312th in the world and 5,492nd in Lazarus for Highest Poor Incomes, with 21,850.99 Standard Monetary Units.
