The Holy Theocratic Imperium of Rolandtopia is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Grand Doci with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.478 billion 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 96%. 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.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, the space program has been scrapped in order to focus on more terrestrial pursuits, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Rolanditism, and its currency is the Gold-Pressed Latinum.

Rolandtopia is ranked 11th in The United Federation and 119,352nd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
