The Epic Commonwealth of Roissyland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master-General Will Powers with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.666 billion Roissylandians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hope. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roissylandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,664 trillion Pounds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,489 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and Master-General Will Powers can finally stop kneading the dough and start rolling in it instead. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roissyland's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Undeclared.

Roissyland is ranked 240,823rd in the world and 11,065th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
