The Republic of The Rocky is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 603 million Rockyians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.3%.

The strong Rockyian economy, worth 39.4 trillion Rockieses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 65,275 Rockieses, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Military barracks resemble five-star hotels, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rocky's national animal is the Dog, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Rocky is ranked 69,628th in the world and 2,311th in Lazarus for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,747.51 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
