The Armed Republic of NORDICROME is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by DUCE DOMENICO with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.303 billion Romans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BREMEN. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.1%.

The frighteningly efficient NORDICROMEian economy, worth 404 trillion Euros 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 an impressive 175,584 Euros, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, national stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NORDICROME's national animal is the Bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pagan Catholicism.

NORDICROME is ranked 9,255th in the world and 18th in 21st Century Rome for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 426,633.2 Standard Monetary Units.
