Regional Influence: Auxiliary
Location: Imperium Romanum
The Imperium of Romanist is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Aecius with an iron fist, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.486 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, moralistic 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.
The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is to each his own belief, and its currency is the denariiu.
