The Woodhouse Sanctum of Rolands End is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Childe Roland with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.998 billion Rolands Endians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle Rock. The average income tax rate is 9.6%.

The powerhouse Rolands Endian economy, worth a remarkable 1,441 trillion $$s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Gambling. Average income is 65,542 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, high school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, commemoration of the Great BLITZKRIEG War costs almost as much as the war itself, and drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rolands End's national animal is the ^-^, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rolands End is ranked 22,673rd in the world and 3rd in BLITZKRIEG for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,059.69 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
