The Confederacy of Roddland is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The quiet, industrious population of 209 million Roddics are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Roddlandian economy, worth 5.03 trillion Stenbucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 24,044 Stenbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and women who display their ankles are shunned by society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roddland's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Roddland is ranked 129,315th in the world and 22nd in Union of Nationalists for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
