The Kongelige Forbund of Roliganistan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gorm den Gamle with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.062 billion Roliganer enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hafnia. The average income tax rate is 7.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rolig economy, worth a remarkable 2,896 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 359,321 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Gorm den Gamle's most personal functions, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Roliganistan's national animal is the Playful Panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Roliganistan is ranked 24,809th in the world and 447th in The East Pacific for Nudest, with 215.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
