The Imperator's Fortress State of Gracius Maximus is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Minister with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.1 billion Maximoes are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Directorate City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.3%.
The powerhouse Gracius Maximusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,078 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 56,476 Denarii, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 191,400 per year while the poor average 12,306, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.
Drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, elections have recently been reintroduced to Gracius Maximus, Gracius Maximus has designated Directorate City as its capital city, and The Minister has just been declared ruler of Gracius Maximus in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gracius Maximus's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moldavism.
