The Grand Empire of Rolais is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Francois I with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and public floggings. The devout population of 12.232 billion Rolesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tel Andes. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rolaisian economy, worth 655 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. Average income is 53,617 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications, and political dissidents are cut off from essential services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rolais's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Artyanism.

Rolais is ranked 237,105th in the world and 153rd in Arkonos for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.98 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
