|Leader||Gaius Lucanus Aurelius|
The Res Publica Romana of Desmosthenes and Burke is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gaius Lucanus Aurelius with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.288 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lutetia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.
The very strong Burkean economy, worth 321 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 97,881 Denarii, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 389,776 per year while the poor average 16,556, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.
The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities. 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.
