The Democratic Republic of Rico Roca is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gilberto Gonzales with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.123 billion Rico Rocans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of T'chnok. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rico Rocan economy, worth a remarkable 2,743 trillion pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 160,226 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

City mayors have to get permission from parliament to take a vacation day, designer truncheons are the latest law enforcement fashion craze, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rico Roca's national animal is the Rico Rocan Amazon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Rico Roca is ranked 83,848th in the world and 5th in Caribbean for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 168,628 Standard Monetary Units.
