Regional Influence: Superpower
The Imperium of Romanist is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aecius with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 17.773 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
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.
Citizens select which government department gets their income tax denariius each year, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is to each his own belief, and its currency is the denariiu.
