The Eternal Radiant Empire of Roania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Houoxin Huangdi with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 41.563 billion Roanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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. The average income tax rate is 78.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Roanian economy, worth an astonishing 11,998 trillion Imperial Cashes a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 288,673 Imperial Cashes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, the decommissioned tank divisions of other nations are being bought up en masse by Roania, many citizens refuse to smile lest they reveal their gold fillings, and kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers. 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 Heaven and Earth.

Roania is ranked 1,169th in the world and 1st in Roania for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 12,544.91 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
