The Shopping Mall of Roeselare is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Rolarius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, enforced nudity, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.912 billion Roeselareans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of De Munt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.0%.

The thriving Roeselarean economy, worth a remarkable 1,686 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 73,592 Euros, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, and the Roeselarean Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roeselare's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Econmicaism.

Roeselare is ranked 199,508th in the world and 53rd in Vlaanderen for Most Avoided, scoring 1.69 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
