The Jingoistic States of Rhothstan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Volker Böhm with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, national health service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.595 billion Rhothstanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lugerhagen. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhothstanian economy, worth 131 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 82,289 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Volker Böhm has more friends than ever before, public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhothstan's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rhothstan is ranked 162,716th in the world and 5,265th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.24 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
