The Kingdom of Rolven is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Birgitta Raske with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.495 billion Rolves 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Borgund. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rolvish economy, worth a remarkable 1,567 trillion Kroner a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 165,101 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, Birgitta Raske is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rolven's national animal is the Red Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rolven is ranked 206,234th in the world and 20th in Nordic Lands for Most Avoided, scoring 0.27 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
