Regional Influence: Power
The Imperium of Romanist is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Aecius with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.687 billion Romans 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."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Roma. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, Roman Eagles with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, and the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in Brasil. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romanist's national animal is the Roman Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, its national religion is to each his own belief, and its currency is the denariiu.
