Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Corporate Dark Police Empire of Imperial Dark Rome is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Imperial Satanic Council with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.837 billion Imperial Dark Roman Soldiers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Dark Rome Fortress-001. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Dark Roman Soldier economy, worth an astonishing 17,325 trillion Ammunitions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 645,595 Ammunitions, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,750,976 per year while the poor average 97,428, a ratio of 28.2 to 1.

It's always rabbit season, the government is seen to favor Catholics, books are so highly regarded in Imperial Dark Rome that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Imperial Dark Rome's national animal is the Roman Skeleton Soldier, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Satanism-Luciferism-Diabolatry.

Imperial Dark Rome is ranked 1,710th in the world and 65th in Balder for Largest Black Market, with 346 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
