The Epic Commonwealth of Roissyland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Master-General Will Powers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.682 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, 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 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roissylandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,058 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 131,236 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, Master-General Will Powers's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence. 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 205,308th in the world and 8,365th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -42.44 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
