The Avuronian State of Anin of The Mike Roctafinserland is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Scarlet with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, flagrant waste-dumping, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.406 billion Roctanians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okusha. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mike Roctafinserlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,086 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 201,072 Roctanian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Queen Scarlet panders to nontraditional families, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, and the most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones. 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 13,115th in the world and 704th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.48 on the Human Development Index.
