The 驚くほど皮肉な国 of Roiko is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 704 million roiks are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of rook. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming roikan economy, worth 77.4 trillion dong a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,960 dong, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Children are encouraged to fail at school so as not to appear too enlightened, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roiko's national animal is the mosquito, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Roiko is ranked 254,529th in the world and 1,480th in 10000 Islands for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -28 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
