The Holy Theocratic Imperium of Rolandtopia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Grand Doci with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.074 billion Rolandtopans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Defence, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shi'Kahr. The average income tax rate is 97%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rolandtopia's national animal is the Tribble, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Rolanditism, and its currency is the Gold-Pressed Latinum.

Rolandtopia is ranked 9th in The United Federation and 107,653rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -17 on the Hayek Index.
