Deleted root user

After using the command:

#gpasswd -a france sys

have used th "user manager" to see if the france user was added to the group sys.

Than when i have tried to access as su it tell me:

user root does not exist

Is possible to recreate root account?

Is there any solution?

Thanks Francesco
