The Mysterious black holə of Roless is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the funky badger of greatness with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.866 billion Rolessians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ichasa. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rolessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,374 trillion Rezzats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 282,432 Rezzats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, immigrants who don't like the taste of Rolessian Turnip Chips are immediately deported, the nation has declared war on all passing comets, and film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roless's national animal is the Funky badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is funkyism.

Roless is ranked 237,421st in the world and 416th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -405.58 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
