The Grand Republic of Rouene is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Nicolas Valois with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.721 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 2.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rouenic economy, worth a remarkable 1,604 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 slick, highly efficient, 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 238,656 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself". 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 70,086th in the world and 3,757th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 60.48 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
