The Stereotypical Italian Regime of Ayytaly is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Mario Fonzie Balboa with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.53 billion Paisanos are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Little Ayytaly. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paisano economy, worth 852 trillion Guidoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 188,209 Guidoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

It turns out that money can buy you happiness, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and the roads are virtually falling apart. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ayytaly's national animal is the Bambino, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jersey Shore.

Ayytaly is ranked 17,529th in the world and 1st in Roman Empire for Most Developed, scoring 85.02 on the Human Development Index.
