The Epic Commonwealth of Roissyland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Master-General Will Powers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.451 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, 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 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roissylandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,281 trillion Pounds a year, is extremely 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 130,718 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, parking's carefree without parking car fees, and New Hope spends billions upgrading public transport. 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 239,230th in the world and 8,172nd in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 6.32 Insults Per Minute.
