The ROC of Speyland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Annemiek Blokvoord with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.633 billion Speylandiers 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 9.1%.

The all-consuming Speylandian economy, worth 458 trillion Speylandier guilders a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,891 Speylandier guilders, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and urban citizens are forced onto public transport while rural citizens ride horses and buggies. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Speyland's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Urigrism.

Speyland is ranked 41,380th in the world and 82nd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Developed, scoring 67.39 on the Human Development Index.
