The Holy Theocracy of Rolana is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by God with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.874 billion Rolanians 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, although Environment and Industry are also considered important, while Healthcare and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Church Land. The average income tax rate is 6.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rolanian economy, worth 519 trillion Alpinats a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 52,563 Alpinats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Lamb Dung" has been declared a national treasure, depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Rolana's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is all of them.

Rolana is ranked 183,690th in the world and 7th in Leppikanian Puppet Storage for Most Pro-Market, scoring -79 on the Rand Index.
