The Federal Republic of Rotenstein is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Friedrich von Rotenstein with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.03 billion Rotensteiners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rotadlerburg. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rotensteinian economy, worth 179 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,509 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rotensteinian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rotenstein's national animal is the red eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rotenstein is ranked 13,027th in the world and 248th in Europe for Best Weather, with 190 Meters Of Sunlight.
