The culture of Roosevelt embodies the artistic, culinary, humor, political and social elements that are representative of Misberians. Throughout Misberia's history, its culture has been influenced by European culture and traditions, mostly by the British and French, and by the Wabanaki Confederacy. Over time, elements of the cultures of Misberia's international populations have become incorporated to form a Misberia cultural mosaic.
Misberian culture is often characterized as being very diverse, progressive and libertarian. Misberia's Royal Government has often been described as the instigator of multicultural ideology because of its public emphasis on the concepts of pluralism and open mindedness. Misberia's culture draws from its broad range of nationalities, and policies that promote a just society are constitutionally protected. Misberian Government policies— such as, promotion and advocacy of LGBTQ+ communities, climate change education and advocacy and the promotion and advocacy of the Educational and Special Education fields — are social indicators of the country's political and cultural values.
The Roosevelt government takes inspiration from Misberian culture as well as Adonian culture to meld into a unique North American culture. The community of Roosevelt reflects the adoption and melding of Adonian Socialism as well as Communitarian Arborism, as well as the adoption of a Scout Organization, named the North Roosevelt Unit, akin to the Boy Scouts of America and the Adonian Scout League.
