The Respublica Imperatoria of Americae Roma is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President George W Bush with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.745 billion Americans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tertio Roma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.8%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 296 trillion Bitcoin-Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 170,193 Bitcoin-Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 878,095 per year while the poor average 17,969, a ratio of 48.9 to 1.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Americae Roma's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Neoconservative-interventionism.

Americae Roma is ranked 51,288th in the world and 2,189th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,824.28 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
