The Mysterious Black Hole of Roless is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The High King of Roless with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.044 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, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atchta. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rolessian economy, worth a remarkable 3,521 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 437,827 Rezzats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, metal detectors at school gates make sure that teenagers are carrying at least one sidearm, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. 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 4,702nd in the world and 33rd in Forest for Highest Economic Output, with 3,521 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
