The Eternal Radiant Empire of Roania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Glorious Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.579 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, well-organized 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 53.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Roanian economy, worth a remarkable 7,422 trillion Imperial Cashes a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 214,653 Imperial Cashes, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Even snitches get stitches, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. 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 640th in the world and 7th in The Vast for Highest Economic Output, with 7,422 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
