The Commonwealth of Roenland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Worker Councils with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.667 billion Roenlandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goetheburg. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Roenlandian economy, worth 427 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 91,587 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, Roenlandian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises, and Roenlandian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Worker Councils. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roenland's national animal is the roe deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Roenland is ranked 167,901st in the world and 252nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
