Rosebourg - Factbook

  • Introduction::


    The Rosebourg Monarchy, often referred to as the Kingdom of Rosebourg, or simply Rosebourg, is located in central Europe, is a parliamentary democratic constitutional monarchy.

    Rosebourg borders to the north-west: Atlantica, the north-east: Marrakechia, and the south-east: Sahrawi and the Vatican. Its capital and seat of government is based in Arnou.

    Rosebourg has been shaped by all of Europe’s major conflicts, and has emerged from them as one of the most economically developed country of Europe. It is a founding member of a number of international agencies and bodies, and is a signatory of the Kyoto environmental treaty.

    The country straddles the border of the Arabic, Germanic and Latin cultures of the European Union and has adopted many distinct features from each of them. One of its clearest expressions is the wide diversity of languages within its borders where Rosebourghish, Dutch, French, and German, are all recognised as official languages. Rosebourg is a secular state though the predominant faith groups remain of Catholic persuasions.

    Arnou, the country’s capital is the seat of several influential European Union agencies.
