The Res Publica Romana of Desmosthenes and Burke is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Gaius Lucanus Aurelius with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.706 billion Burkeans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lutetia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The thriving Burkean economy, worth 380 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 102,740 Denarii, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 352,478 per year while the poor average 21,979, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists, school children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desmosthenes and Burke's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Religio Romanum.

Desmosthenes and Burke is ranked 147,384th in the world and 5,564th in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -10.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
