The Res Publica Romana of Desmosthenes and Burke is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gaius Lucanus Aurelius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.306 billion Burkeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lutetia. The average income tax rate is 31.3%.

The powerhouse Burkean economy, worth a remarkable 1,203 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 116,795 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection, large areas of Desmosthenes and Burke are not accessible by the public, and the fate of the world literally rests on Gaius Lucanus Aurelius's fingers. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Religio Romanum.

Desmosthenes and Burke is ranked 83,141st in the world and 2,224th in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,469.83 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
