The Avuronian Queendom of The Mike Roctafinserland is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Scarlet with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.85 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Education, 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 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mike Roctafinserlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,441 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Information Technology, 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 amazing 210,392 Roctanian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Warm coats are the hottest trend, veterans' meet-ups involve a lot of tail sniffing, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, and lottery winners spend most of their money on security. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Taraa.

The Mike Roctafinserland is ranked 6,322nd in the world and 358th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 123,397.97 Standard Monetary Units.
