The Commonwealth of Rodez is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Perrin Doumergue with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.842 billion Rodezians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castelmayran. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Rodezian economy, worth 129 trillion livres a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Book Publishing. Average income is 26,838 livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For 25 livres tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, political candidates must be personally vetted by Perrin Doumergue, the tribal zone has been opened to up to 'economic interest' groups, and politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad. 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 28,594th in the world and 23rd in Cobalt Network for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,386.75 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
