The Empire of Roguean is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Divine Emperor Jorhan Radec with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, vat-grown people, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.134 billion Rogueians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roguea City. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Rogueian economy, worth a remarkable 6,248 trillion Roguean Credits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 a breathtaking 561,223 Roguean Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, and the government is encouraging violence on television. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Roguean's national animal is the Roguean Asena Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Imperial Cult.

Roguean is ranked 166,190th in the world and 4,419th in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
