The Commonwealth of Rodez is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Perrin Doumergue with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.992 billion Rodezians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castelmayran. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rodezian economy, worth 489 trillion livres a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 40,835 livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are no more heroes any more, sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, and Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rodez's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Rodez is ranked 252,977th in the world and 6,237th in Lazarus for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -11.4 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
