The Roman Empire of Diodone is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Jupiter with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.371 billion Diodoneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 98.8%.

The very strong Diodonean economy, worth a remarkable 2,251 trillion Denariis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 122,532 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 2,750th in the world and 123rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 18,097.06 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
