The Nomadic Peoples of The Roadrunner is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Teh Roadrunner with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.981 billion Meep Meeps are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Forest. The average income tax rate is 49.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Meep Meep economy, worth 203 trillion MPHS 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. 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 51,156 MPHS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, and it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom. Crime is relatively low. The Roadrunner's national animal is the Roadrunner and its national religion is Outrun the Wile E Coyote.

The Roadrunner is ranked 156,510th in the world and 352nd in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.68 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
