The Empire of Americae Roma is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 423 million Americae Romans 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 prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novam Urbem Romam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Americae Roman economy, worth 46.6 trillion Bitcoin-Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 110,210 Bitcoin-Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 601,392 per year while the poor average 10,344, a ratio of 58.1 to 1.

Exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek, and Americae Roma's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Americae Roma's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Americae Roma is ranked 169,501st in the world and 8,799th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -10.95 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
