The Free Imperial Republic of Janusus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Imperial Consul with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.046 billion Janususians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Janususian economy, worth a remarkable 2,037 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 202,820 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,146,006 per year while the poor average 17,624, a ratio of 65.0 to 1.

Factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, and small shoes often wash up on the beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Janusus's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Janusus is ranked 13,311th in the world and 2nd in Crassia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 89.89 on the Rand Index.
