The Commonwealth of Roenland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Worker Councils with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.284 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goetheburg. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Roenlandian economy, worth 843 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 90,861 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, third world countries are rich in "I Love Goetheburg" t-shirts, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million marks of property damage. 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 262,442nd in the world and 157th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.58 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
