The Epic Commonwealth of Roissyland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Master-General Will Powers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.08 billion Roissylandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hope. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roissylandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,100 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 130,625 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, urbanites are banned from bucolic settings for safety concerns, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. 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 11,061st in the world and 300th in The East Pacific for Nudest, with 219 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
