The Roman Empire of Diodone is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord Jupiter with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.172 billion Diodoneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camp Jupiter. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The Diodonean economy, worth a remarkable 1,080 trillion Denariis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 106,174 Denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Diodone's national animal is the Lightning bolt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ancient Roman.

Diodone is ranked 152,950th in the world and 7,644th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -32.24 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
