LeaderEmperor Octavius IV


The Roman Empire of Minachia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Octavius IV with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.672 billion Minachians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Velitrae. The average income tax rate is 21.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Minachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,656 trillion denarii a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,734 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

National stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, Minachian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Emperor Octavius IV, and etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Minachia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Minachia is ranked 232,685th in the world and 24th in Elparia for Most Beautiful Environments, with 55.18 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
