“I'm better than Olivier”

Location: Il Duce
The Cheap Dimestore Hoods of Rolands End is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Childe Roland with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.377 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle Rock. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12%. A robust private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling industries.
Conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, Childe Roland has just been declared ruler of Rolands End in an international press conference, crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rolands End's national animal is the ^-^, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the $$.
