The Grand Republic of Rouene is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Nicolas Valois with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.783 billion Rouenic people have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Providence. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Rouenic economy, worth a remarkable 1,424 trillion francs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 246,291 francs, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and it's rumored that Marche Noire knows what the nation's generals eat for breakfast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rouene's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Rouene is ranked 4,948th in the world and 240th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 505.94 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
