The Eternal Radiant Empire of Roania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The JinLong Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.401 billion Roanians 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."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huanxin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Roanian economy, worth a remarkable 9,341 trillion Imperial Cashes a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 249,773 Imperial Cashes, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, and consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roania's national animal is the Imperial Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Temple of the Light.

Roania is ranked 15,486th in the world and 5th in The Vast for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 7,360.05 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
