The Commonwealth of Rockamaba is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Joe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.11 billion Rockamabans 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 Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kranvagn. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rockamaban economy, worth 155 trillion Rockaian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,195 Rockaian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Rockaian Dollar battlesuits, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rockamaba's national animal is the Rockian Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rockamaba is ranked 45,141st in the world and 1,525th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 227,096 Standard Monetary Units.
