The Mysterious black holə of Roless is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the funky badger of greatness with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.967 billion Rolessians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ichasa. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rolessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,475 trillion Rezzats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 297,031 Rezzats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Rolessian Navy, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, Rolessians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, and Rolessians believe manners maketh the leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roless's national animal is the Funky badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is funkyism.

Roless is ranked 6,037th in the world and 67th in Forest for Most Developed, scoring 93.07 on the Human Development Index.
