The ROC of Speyland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Annemiek Blokvoord with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.98 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, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 18.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Speylandian economy, worth 575 trillion Speylandier guilders a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,314 Speylandier guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 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 moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Speyland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Urigrism.

Speyland is ranked 10,995th in the world and 5th in Greater Middle East for Largest Black Market, with 85.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
