The Epic Commonwealth of Roissyland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master-General Will Powers with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.498 billion Roissylandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hope. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roissylandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,166 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,295 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roissyland's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Undeclared.

Roissyland is ranked 24,327th in the world and 513th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 81.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
