The Grand Republic of Rouene is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Nicolas Valois with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, devout population of 6.178 billion Rouenic people are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rouenic economy, worth a remarkable 1,624 trillion francs 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 a large, well-organized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 262,902 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, and most academic research has ground to a halt. 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 16,908th in the world and 814th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,903.26 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
