The Columnunist black holə of Roless is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The High Funky Badger with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.772 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ichasa. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rolessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,893 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 328,114 Rezzats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, and children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia. 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 19,485th in the world and 33rd in Forest for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,310.6 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
