The Armed Technocracy of Rockemsockem is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Corant with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.286 billion Rockaskeites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vel'os citadel. The average income tax rate is 61.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sockeite economy, worth 633 trillion cruisers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 192,841 cruisers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', third world countries are rich in "I Love Vel'os Citadel" t-shirts, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and declaring that "some kids are just born evil" is not endearing President Corant to progressive thinkers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rockemsockem's national animal is the Northern Bisoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is of The Glorious Manperor of Mankind.

Rockemsockem is ranked 206,102nd in the world and 5,112th in the Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -10.95 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
