The Holy Empire of Rolancia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.649 billion Rolancians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Public Transport, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pendrago. The average income tax rate is 29.7%.

The Rolancian economy, worth 209 trillion Rancs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,908 Rancs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and the fate of the world literally rests on Leader's fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Rolancia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rolancia is ranked 81,633rd in the world and 4,598th in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
