The Holy Imperial Empire of Romatticus is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The High Exalted Arch Emperor Augustus with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.62 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 concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Forum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Uranium Mining.

Motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, and calling out of the blue has become taboo. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romatticus's national animal is the Panda Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Cult of Personality, and its currency is the Dollop.

Romatticus is ranked 196th in Osiris and 5,523rd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
