The Dwarfplanet of Roderick II is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Roderick II with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.027 billion Rodericks 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roderickia Minor. The average income tax rate is 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Roderickian economy, worth 40.5 trillion Rings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,526 Rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roderick II has designated Roderickia Minor as its capital city, Roderick II has just been declared ruler of Roderick II in an international press conference, and nihilism has been named as Roderick II's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roderick II's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is nihilism.

Roderick II is ranked 235,308th in the world and 7,488th in the Rejected Realms for Rudest Citizens, with 10.57 Insults Per Minute.
