The Grand Republic of Rouene is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Nicolas Valois with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, national health service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.061 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 relatively small, 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 2.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rouenic economy, worth a remarkable 1,757 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, fairly diversified 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 248,896 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Homophobia is off the menu, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Providence for fear of causing a fuss. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 21,654th in the world and 1,185th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 119.59 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
