The Commonwealth of Rodez is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Perrin Doumergue with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.212 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castelmayran. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Rodezian economy, worth 133 trillion livres a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. Average income is 25,704 livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders, and Perrin Doumergue's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will. 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 68,328th in the world and 34th in Cobalt Network for Highest Economic Output, with 133 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
